↳High frequency radio waves penetrate the ionosphere;
↳Free electrons in the upper atmosphere respond by oscillating and scattering their energy incoherently;
↳The cross-polarized half-wavelength dipole antenna-array picks up this faint incoherent scatter;
↳The ultra-powerful 22 acre antenna probes the upper atmosphere to measure electron densities, makes observations of planets, and studies solar coronas and solar gases;
↳Analysis of this new collected data, yielding information heretofore concealed, provides the basis for calling this new technique "space research from the ground." 

SCATTER_RADAR is a real-time audio-visual performance centered around the largest incoherent scatter radar observatory in the world, The Jicamarca Radio Observatory. The piece reinterprets rare 1963 industrial footage representing travelogue-like sequence throughout the mesmerizing architectural qualities of the observatory. Experimenting on the relationship between the observer’s spatial, sensory and sonic attention, through an immersive, over-stimuli submersion. The performance challenges the limits of auditory and visual perception while at the same time leaving the spectators with a long-lasting sensations of a disorientating, highly-charged dystopian nature.
