Lina Chang is a phonographer that observes the way information is stored and retained in the form of traces. Working with the process of pulp making and radio wave frequencies – self-recording machines are created in which memory is carved and inscribed. The past is manifested through re-tracing the surfaces of grooves, where a non-physical experience is rematerialized. Recording mediums possess their own unique form of archiving the past through specific processing speeds, housed in various structures. Observing the inscription and the ‘record’, her aim is to find alternative forms of reading artefacts of the past through a presence and absence of information.
