Radiation as communication and imagination in art
Tetsuo Kogawa

Waves have the wide range from physical vibration to light. Radio art deals with the in-between of the two extremes. It would be even between "handy" body-side and "telepathic" side. Radio must be understood as radiation. Radiation is communication as well as imagination in art. Tetsuo Kogawa will also introduce with his own experience and experiments.
