Faxes from Space, 2014. 7.5 x 7.6 x .75 in. Digital offset printed, 200 pages.
Faxes from Space contains research and documentation surrounding the build of a quadrifilar helicoidal antenna at Elsewhere, a living museum in a former thrift store in Greensboro, North Carolina. The antenna was used to receive transmissions from orbiting NOAA satellites, which were decoded to reveal images of the Earth and its weather patterns from high above the museum. The collected images are included in the book, and cold war era educational texts from Elsewhere’s collection were used to illustrate the process.
The antenna remains at Elsewhere as part of the collection: www.goelsewhere.org/faxes-from-space/
