Creators: Eshun, Kodwo
Abstract or Description:

Conceived and conceptualised by The Otolith Group and 3D scanned and animated by ScanLab, Sovereign Sisters does not document the contemporary condition of the monument to the Universal Postal Union but instead derealises its seemingly anachronistic aesthetic. In spectralising its deification of global communication into a greyscale pointcloud, Sovereign Sisters seeks to summon the undead spirits of infrastructure and automatism that lie dormant and sublimated within Saint-Marceaux’s patriarchitecture of monument as maiden.
