A chart recorder is transformed into an automatic drawing machine, its source the electrical fluctuations of a detuned radio. The universe is permeated by radiation, the Cosmic Microwave Background, which contemporary cosmology concludes is the cooled remnant of the Big Bang. Everywhere, all the time, it's visible in the snow between channels on a television, the hiss of static on a radio, the rattling pen of the chart recorder, like a spirit hand.

Shown in the 2006 Hayward Gallery touring show You'll Never Know : Drawing and Random Interference, it's discussed in David Lomas's essay Becoming Machine: Surrealist Automatism and Some Contemporary Instances in the section Re-inscriptions of automatism.
