Radio will be the next investigation item in the virtual drawing workshop What is this Object?
The emergence of radio is a milestone in the history of communication, due to its ability to transmit programming in real time and simultaneously at different points. What this frequency modulation technology produced as a novelty was a new sense of communion around football games, broadcasting news or showing soap operas. In short, what this technology made possible was the creation of new ways of narrating and interacting
In Brazil, the Vargas period was the historical context in which the popularization of radio took place. Due to its diffuser character, it became a privileged vehicle for communication between the State and civil society; and it would not be an exaggeration to assert its role in the formation of the Brazilian national identity.
Over time, radio began to share space with other communication technologies and in homes it continued to lose its centrality as an object or mobile. However, radio – as a function – remains fundamental for communication today.
We would like to hear from your memories about the radio.
Children and adults are welcome.
