Plant Radio
for Plants

9.5 The StickFM or Plant Radio for Plants - was developed and preformed by Amanda White, Brad Isaacs, and various indoor and outdoor plants over the course of several days in 2014. The StickFM radio station broadcasted live from the woods at 89.5 FM via low watt homemade radio transmitters attached to sticks. Drawing on the idea that radio as a medium can be a way in which “unheard voices can be amplified”, the objective of the project was to facilitate radio communication between communities of indoor and outdoor plants, as well as to question encounters between plants and humans.
