Analogue Memories

Antenna, concrete
Union Gewerbehof, Dortmund
3 m x 1.60 m, 5’3” x 9’10”

This huge antenna fell off the roof one day in a heavy storm and laid on the street for weeks. I picked it up, this beautiful dinosaur from the analog era. 

The antenna plant is a reminiscence, a fading symbol of the past. It once was a symbol of power of information; and it tells of times of fights between the East and West, of an Europe divided by physical and mental walls, where people were striving for power and expansion on one, and survival and freedom on the other side.
