The artist wrote about his project: "(...)On 30 July, 1988, "Radio Ruins of Art" made its first broadcast at LW 97,2 Mhz and would broadcast 24 hours a day for the next 5 and a half years. The world's longest radio programme was a philosophical discourse on infinity. The discourse was led by two characters: Gary and Paula, whereas a "radical cross-section" of the world's phlosophical writings was presented by a computer. It did so by picking arguments at random, and so despite the pre-fixed amount of KNOWLEDGE those accidental encounters Plato, Schoppenhauer, Godl, Chuang Tzu, James, Russel and other Renowned Philosophers would result in the unexpected NEW THOUGHTS.

(...) My original plan was for the discourse on infinity to last forever. I even considered the option of converting the radio station to solar energy in case of some kind of catastrophe destroying the Power Plant-Civilisation."
