The pages of this book are made out of my old painting cut in pieces. I stitched to them three kinds of objects: old slides of my artist’s books, agave thorns from the desert I live at now and found metal pieces, whose history is unknown to me. All of them speak about time, transience and places and create short stories on every other page.

For a long time I have been collecting found little metal objects, whose history and sometimes purpose were unknown to me. I have used these pieces in many of my works dealing with issues of time and transience. In this book, whose pages are made out of Polish linen, I have stitched one or two objects to each page suggesting a narrative.
