In Search of Lost Time

All the blank billboards I've been noticing

brought back memories of a very early project
presented at MAGASIN Centre for Art and Architecture in 1994

the project was based on an observation about the city of Athens
it was called Second City, after the kind of city that the billboards created 
the core of the project was a notebook of text and photos

and if notebooks were the blogs of the 90's
then DIY  BW photo developing was the digital photo?
I wish, because the sketchbook was actually a manual for a series of structures that were built in the Magasin project room, in the exhibition curated by Adelina von Furstenberg, and uncharacteristically I have a very non-digitized archive of those.
