The letter of B.
This series of drawings copy some manuscripts of the German philosopher Walter Benjamin, the thinker who reflected, among other things, on the nature of mechanical copying and its relationship with art. Some of them are notes for The Arcades Project, his unfinished project, others are snippets of complex theories or a simple bill for the cost of a lunch, sleeping puns, trivial things of everyday life that became documents. In this attempt to copy the handwriting, a trait of individuality almost as impossible to imitate as a fingerprint, drawing becomes a form of proximity, crossing time and space.
