The artwork investigates infrastructural operations as a key component of contemporary forms of hybrid warfare. The Radiogram is Red Forest’s sonic and poetic compositional method of electromagnetic transmissions, linking together documentary research, speculative history, musical improvisation, and science fiction. The work weaves together histories, bodies, and territories in eco-social defense from Chornobyl to the Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Mexico. The sound piece is streamed online, and radio broadcasted, but it also connects to specific sites of access on the biennial route
