The printed work is mounted halfway up on the surface of a wall.
It can be read as a giant map.
Once I finish sound editing, the transcription makes the text visible and formal. It’s something that comes afterward, and can take many forms. This map is one of those forms. Neither linear nor vertical like the transcriptions that I publish in catalogs, this time it’s spatial, panoramic, geographic, like a map that fills the entirety of an enormous white page.
Translation in English by Miles Hankin, Chet Wiener and Marisol Rodriguez.
