Antennas in the form of spirals capture electromagnetic interference from a site and transmit them to laser projectors whose motors stochastic vibrations draw the electrical waveforms in the form of light. This coupling of magnetic energy from one system to another, making visible and audible what was previously imperceptible, is the basis of the work titled Panacoustic Vortex developed by Esther Mañas and Arash Moori during the DKV Álvarez Margaride production grant at LABoral.

Installations of copper hiding in walls, ceilings, floors and consumer devices which enable the conductivity of electricity and the conversion of human relations and activity into electronic signs, make this physical media a vital currency of power, technological progress and control in contemporary society.

Alongside antennas and lasers which act as an acoustic panopticon to amplify and visualize the electrical emissions and noise present in these networks, the artists have generated a number of analogue photographic works which rely on a process of high voltage electrical discharges into copper, creating fractal imprints and traces of the materials conductivity.
