How to become a good and even holy person, or Antennas and semicircles
How to become a good and even holy person, or Antennas and semicircles Rambling as a child through the countryside, I used to come across a dilapidated church and always would climb into it. It was very interesting inside. I was always longing to find there an old Bible and an iron cross. However, naturally, only empty spaces were there. But these empty spaces were not less exciting than the unfound Bible or the cross. Especially, semicircular spaces, these semicircles by their design seemed to perfect you. You only had to step into this semicircular coverage area. I also liked the dome and roof frames a lot. They appeared as antennas enhancing the impact of the church semicircles. Rickety crosses looked very convincing as antennas since our TV antenna was also tilted and its angle could not be altered even by a millimetre. Once as a guest I even saw a TV with a hanging meat grinder so that nothing would move. And this hyper-respectful attitude to antenna’s position made it a dominant in space, more principal than a TV itself. A switched-off TV with a convex kinescope and a cruciform antenna somehow reminded of a church. Drawing a house or sculpting one from plasticine I would always place antennas on its roof, this was an essential element… Remembering that time now, I realise that only two things have been sacred for me — antennas and church semicircles.
