I am interested in creating a new language with or without words. It is an open language, created in relation to the visuality of the elements. I read objects, not words, and when I do it, I discover different voices within myself. I try to develop a primitive language of multiple voices whose feeling/meaning I don’t know. It’s my own language, but one in which I ﬁnd myself lost. I am (or I am there; it’s me), but dissolved/dismissed. And so, I try to transcribe the objects through a general language that all will be able to understand and appreciate in their own way.
