Station Identification is an interactive exploration of the Twin Cities’ radio landscape, which will be broadcasting (and receiving) live radio feed from the Foshay Tower observation deck. WNYC, KNOW, KCRW, KUT, KEXP, WHYY, WWOZ, WBEZ, WOLX, WORT — these are letters that may mean nothing or everything to you depending on where you’ve lived and what you’ve listened to. As radio call signs, they can be as much a part of a city’s landscape as lakes, rivers, skyways, and freeways are.

Station Identification explores this relationship by transforming the Foshay Tower’s observation deck into a radio compass. Each radio’s placement corresponds to the direction that station is broadcasting from, providing audience members a connection between what is playing and where it is sourced. Walking through the space — an open-air deck encircling the tower’s peak — is like scanning the radio dial with your feet.

Additionally, Station Identification welcomes participants to respond to their experience using a temporary Internet radio station located on the deck. Accessible at: n.otion.co/si, we are broadcasting live throughout the night, both participants and remote listeners can tune in to this radio programming inspired by and made, in part, for its very own location.
