CYCLADIC CAFE

Cycladic Café Art Project | Athanasios Argianas

 September until October 2019

N. (if someone makes a sound, and its waveform is identical to the profile of their nose then’) is a series of five photographs, each of two pieces of paper, one rumpled and the other flat. 

The image is distorted in such a way that an outline of nose - viewed in profile - is discerned, creating a short circle of references: the sound of the letter N, as a noise, and its sinuous form, prompting the obvious word play - noise and nose both being nasal and noisy words. The title references an anecdote by John Cage, imagining a profile as a waveform and projecting how it may sound.
