This book is based on an existing technical guide for modifying radio frequencies – « IKM-12M »1, with the addition of 98 photographs by Juli Susin. Images are spliced together with diagrams and instructions for wave receivers and have no premeditated relationship, acting like radio interference from a distant place and time.2 Over a background made of both banal and narrative elements, comes the eerie feeling that within arm’s reach one could just as easily find a chair or an abyss. The reader can make their own interpretations and is free to treat these photos, graphics and texts like anonymous archives found in the drawers of an abandoned research center. The cover features an illustration used by the actress Hedy Lamarr’s patent for her invention, « Spread spectrum by frequency hopping », the origin of today’s Wi-Fi technology. 2016, Magnet River (Montreuil-Charkov) One in-4 volume, 21 x 30 cm, 210 pages, hardback with spiral binding, gold inlay by Atelier Martial. 60 copies, xerography on 80 gram Cyclus offset, numbered and signed by the artist.
