Transmissions From The Outpost further explores Ekberg’s modus operandi; combining materials from the human world inhabiting natural and domestic spaces with highly nuanced uses of light. Among his influences, Ekberg cites his personal experiences as a hospice care-giver, analog radio transmissions, and watching a barn burn to the ground as a child. The resulting images transmit his activities and explorations, a life lived on the margins and in the shadows reported back through analog means. Ekberg’s simultaneous absence and presence further communicates a separateness and uncanny luminosity, challenging belief systems and questioning the unseen.
