Index/Criminal offenses, Chapter 11 at the International Studio and Curatorial Program, New York

Index/Criminal offenses, Chapter 11 (Graphite/brille book, 2008)
Drawing excercise performed by blind people in a braille public library. One of the first pages of a book (the Index) was covered with several layers of graphite, becoming the act of reading visible after the contact with such page. This work was inspired by the Patriot Act, a law approved after 09/11/01 that enable the US Government to listen to phone calls, read e-mails and even to check out the list of books taken out from a public library of any suspect of terrorism. (...)“this drawing method allows to keep perfect track on the readings of users at the same time it make us aware of the becoming of private information into a public discourse”.
