101 Uses for your hearing aid ‘T’ switch

Richard Box Field

The power of inductive coupling made visible, in this stunning Field installation by Richard Box. Hundreds of fluorescent tubes planted in the soil glow by inductive coupling to the electromagnetic field of the overhead power lines. This is the same process by which your hearing aids hook up to a loop (or railway power cables) but don’t ask me to explain it any further, you’ll need a physicist or Richard Box for that.

Inspired by the visual drama of Field, I have now lost interest in attempting to hear at station ticket offices, and am off to listen to some pylons instead.
