Title: Pure Reception by Broadcasting

Vintage Swiss poster of a truly inventive design. The poster overlays an anatomical drawing of the inner ear on a portrait of a man, only half his face visible. On top of this already striking combination, the artist has added yellow geometric lines that cross into the man's ear, meant to illustrate broadcasting waves. A version of this poster in French is held in MoMA's collection and was included in their Swiss Poster exhibition.
