In Cartographies 1. La crise de la dimension (Cartographies 1. The crisis of the dimension) an open book lies on a table. The page to the right has no printed text. A hand enters the frame and wanders over the blank page with ink-loaded fingertips. When smudging the page, the ink stamps on the surface and reveals the missing text. This video is part of a series inspired by Henri Michaux’s book Ecuador, from 1929.
