The Australian artist Joyce Hinterding and her use of electromagnetism, natural radio, antennas, and the electrical conductivity of graphite are discussed through four works: Electrical Storms, Aeriology, The Oscillators, and Large Ulam VLF Loop, with attention to the development during an arts residency in New York City and visit to Walter De Maria’s The Lightning Field. “Drawing energy” refers to the electrical properties of graphite to draw circuits and antennas, carrying on themes found in inscriptive and transmissional media: light in photography as a “pencil of nature” and thus of carbon in transducers. Shorter discussions of the artists and musicians Shintaro Miyazaki, Peter Blamey, Christina Kubisch, John Bischoff, and Tom Zahuranec and their approach to electromagnetic energies are included.

Keywords:   Joyce Hinterding, Australian art, antennas as art, circuits as art, pencil of nature, Walter De Maria, The Lightning Field, Peter Blamey, Shintaro Miyazaki, Christina Kubisch, John Bischoff, Tom Zahuranec
