This series takes up a previous procedure of copying handwritten texts. In this case, it is about images that circulate on the internet with reproductions of writings of various times and authors. The medium of the copy is the computer screen that behaves like a light bank and allows images to be traced on paper. As in the previous series, this one investigates the limit between the spontaneity of the gesture and its mechanization, the intimate nature of a text and its public circulation and the limits between the singular and the collective that are always at stake in the old practice of handwriting.
