Selectively Informed investigates the phenomenon of selective truth in media by examining the roots of wireless communication beginning with radio. The installation contains 12 faraday cages with "caged" radios whose voices can be released by opening the doors and silenced by closing them again. Content includes transmissions on the public airwaves as well as locally transmitted sound-based works by the artist and her collaborators.
