The Antenna book of Athens (2022)
Encrypted Poetry Collection: Odes to Antennas in Their Language

21x28 cm




The Antenna book is a work inspired by Athenian rooftop antennas. Generally there are two types of antennas - receiving and transmitting, some combining both types. I was intrigued by the idea of inanimate objects capable of communication, creating an invisible network of signals above my head. Being unable to see (hear) beyond their appearance, I tried to create a visual language, based on their aesthetic features: fine lines, rows and grids, sharp angles and smooth curves. An antenna alphabet is what has come out of this attempt. 

The Antenna font takes on the existing antenna shapes, and by turning them into a coded language «transmits» its own signal. The Antenna book is a collection of photographs, accompanied by encrypted poems addressing antennas themselves.
