The act of saving images and preserving a memory that you dont  want to empty completely, were the start point for this work. The act of archiving does not have logic or rational classification. Photographic images were "selected" by a sort of emotional cartography. On the back of the wooden box, an oil painting indicates the scale of tones used in the five photographs.

Reference Color Chart

 

This notebook, consisting of four folded

prints, was used by the Czech naturalist

Thaddäus Haenke (1761-1817) at the end

of the 18th century to chromatically

encode and identify the flowers of the

world. Part of the archival collection of

the Royal Botanical Gardens in Madrid,

the chart features nearly 2,500 colours.
