Gregnik Proto II

About the Exhibition

Forty years to the day after the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, into space, artist Gregory Green (b.1961, Grand Rapids, MI) installed Gregnik Proto II, a prototype radio transmitter meticulously modeled after the original Sputnik satellite, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Mounted on a rooftop and visible from street level, this silver orb with five antennas appears to hover above the neighborhood and broadcasts unedited artist-created messages over a low frequency fm radio signal to Williamsburg residents.
