R-22 is a new audio narrative collaboratively produced by flatmates Catalina Barroso-Luque and Feronia Wennborg for Wysing Broadcasts. The story follows Refrigerant Gas 22 as they make their way through the distinct environments in a fridge cooling system. R-22 is one and many, embodying both dark and jovial aspects of individual and collective existence. This domestic sci-fi tale was produced in quarantine using home recordings and samples of everything but the kitchen sink.
