DO YOU COPY? / THOMAS & JURGEN
As COVID-19 forced Thoms & Jurgen to stay in, conspiracy theorists claimed 5G technology was spreading the virus. Seeing the wave of mobile tower fires across the country made them realise how magnificent these towers actually are. Relying on the internet to produce, transmit and receive virtual images from home, they quickly became inspired by the idea of telecommunication itself — and the commands that enable it.
From their home offices, they designed a communication system that consists of five categories (1. position, 2. object, 3. color, 4. size, and 5. action). Based on these categories, they started their own visual transmission through code. They deliberately designed a language that leaves room for noise and open interpretation.
The zine > Do You Copy is a collection of towers that have been sent, received and misinterpreted by us during this transmission.
