The Portraits are derived from self portraits ham radio operators used on their QSL cards.
For Stations, a friend returned to the return address on one of the cards and recorded what he found.
The series Silent Key charts the geopolitical map of the 20th Century as represented through QSL cards – printed traces of individual contacts which track a convoluted global narrative. “Silent Key” is ham lingo for a radio operator who has died. Other parts of the series are the Antennas and Deleted Entities.
