PENSÉES ANIMALES

A while ago, after writing some texts and thoughts about the past and the present, I came up with the idea of doing an illustrated diary based into specifics facts that I had experienced and that could make a link between animal and human. 

Some of the texts talk about feelings and thoughts, and some others texts about things that happened to me and that were buried in the past. Things that remained in my memory after so many years, but brought together through both, an animal and a human point of view: what bring us together, the human behavior in animals, the animal behavior in humans, and how we communicate between each other or where we draw the line between animal and human...

The work is presented as an illustrated diary in a engraved metal box made on a special mesure that contains 5 different texts with illustrations and photographies with different artistic techniques such as linocut, riso printing or laser.
