A project developed by artist Kelly Large in collaboration with STATIC as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2002.




Wish You Were Here presented a range of aural explorations of nearness and remoteness from contemporary artists, writers, cultural theorists, local communities and people whose professions concerned ‘near’ and ‘far’. In November 2002 the station transmitted four programmes during which a host of contributors investigated ways radio sound could engage and disengage people. This audio CD publication – at the time fiercely debated within STATIC as to whether it should be produced or not – is the only record of the four broadcasts.
