Description

This work is composed of two different texts: “The Present” and “A moment ago”. “The Present” is printed on one side of a page and “A moment ago” is printed on the back. There are 125 pages that are put together in the form of a book. The cover and the back cover extend these two texts into the exterior, making it possible for these two texts to enter in contact with the world outside, like a table or other books. For simplicity I will refer to it as a “book”. The book has also a circular perforation that goes along the pages. Through the perforation there is a yellow cord attached in a circular way. The rope allows the book to be hung from a nail, just like a tool.

The books are not signed nor numbered as introducing a signature in the pages would create a temporal disruption. I opted for including a “page marker” which is simply a small piece of paper, it is this paper that is numbered and signed.
