First Friday Art & Studio Stroll in Garden City, Idaho on December 3, 2021.

Ted Apel’s sound installation at the GreenBox.

Installation: The Only Thing We Have to Fear

Artist Statement: In 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt began to broadcast a series of radio addresses on policy directly to the American people. These addresses became known as "fireside chats" and continued throughout the three terms of his presidency.

In this installation, a radio plays a mixture of sounds from a forest fire and a fireside chat that has been altered to accentuate only the noisy parts of the speech. Here the message is obscured and reinterpreted in layers of noise.
