A trace of my reading in the form of a rendition of the shadows cast in and by an open book.

The book is Vous les entendez?, a novel by Nathalie Sarraute. In all her work Sarraute endeavours to make apparent with language the intangible, extremely subtle sensations barely expressed or perceived in quotidian life, inner movements in the relations or the disconnection between people. What she calls tropismes.

The positions of the shadows were marked out and the area stenciled in powdered graphite. A torn rather than cut edge was used to suggest a less distinct line of transition from the materiality of the paper and the ephemerality of the shadows, from the space of the page and to the time of reading.
