• Seated at a Table with You

    This object is a secret affair between a personal vision of a voyeur and a specific place used as a case of study. It brings together images, notes and behaviours contributed from strangers, customers in a coffee shop. This is the most information that many of you will receive from a man who has been seated on a chair for one month, looking for an inspiration and discover how to engage with a different culture. These quieter images show us an interaction from the eyes and mind of a voyeur drawing segments of a daily routine of complete strangers through words and a machine with lens. The pages of this book are frozen moments of an essay film which forces egomania playing a game of cat and mouse with the issues of signature, property, secrecy and a desire of drifting the author as a narrator on a process of metamorphosis with the concern of ‘How to frame stories?’. From the table of a coffee shop, images reborn as words and words are embody by sounds.   // First Edition, 137 pages, 23,5 x 16,5 cm, 160gms matte paper (white) and 90gms matte paper (white), Inkjet Printing, Perfect Binding
