Transmissions was an audio installation- drive-in style- that participants experienced via their car radios. The installation consisted of audio recordings of Edgewood residents discussing change and adaption over time in the community of Edgewood. Each resident's dialogue was broadcasted on a different frequency. Viewers could drive to the site, and then listen to the audio tracks by tuning their car radio to the indicated frequency. If multiple cars were present the entire conversation could be heard. If there was one car present, viewers could switch between the frequencies to hear different parts of the conversation. Adapting to change, a key component of persistence is also a quality reflected in the medium of radio, a technology that has persisted and remained relevant as other audio technologies have become obsolete.
