SNOW DRIFT/ SNOW FALL
With the end of broadcast television approaching, the snow or electronic noise on now otherwise useless vintage television consoles is warped and folded using high powered magnetic fields to drift the "snow" into shapes resembling landscapes and snowfall patterns. This effect is accentuated through installing the sets to suggest a large three dimensional landscape. Additionally, the magnets also alter the sound waves emanating from the consoles- en masse these shifts in pitch , when combined resemble the sound of wind drifting snow across a frozen landscape.
