Simon Elvins, student of Communication Art and Design, wanted to make radio waves and the sound they carry more tangible. His FM Radio Map plots the location of FM commercial and pirate radio stations within London. The poster works in its own right as a piece of information design but when connected it directly relates the radio sound back to the space/ place in which it was created.
Placing a metal contact onto each point enables us to listen to the sound broadcast live from that location.
