This Research project explores the relationship & closeness we maintain with personal images as well as their abilities to interact and communicate with the outter world. We looked into the process of transforming daily-life pictures into universal images. In the context of constant photography spreading —brought by the massive use of social media platforms— our main purpose was to question the natural disposition the overflow of images tends to produce — a feeling of emptiness provoking the loss of sense facing the content. Simultaneously, we examined the border between fullness & vacuity and the relation they maintain, as opposite concepts.

With this in mind, we designed a book presenting the entirety of the videos that one of our team member filmed during his summer trip. We translated the movie by screen shooting every seconds of each footages recorded at the time. Bound like an archiving material, this raw & meditative object gathering 9240 screenshots gives life to a compelling and universal narrative focusing on time, space and memory. The creation process of the book itself refers to research practice as we considered that manually screenshooting 9240 images was a form of performance.
