The pure physicality of signs can be their most impressive trait. During a day of looking at words and images on screens, it’s often a relief to be confronted with a message that doesn’t scroll, that isn’t clickable, that’s so clearly made up of inflexible matter.

Here you see a doorpost at the entrance to a Spanish restaurant. Stucco, wood, metal, paint, screws: the construction is simple yet forceful and the saturated primary colours create a ferocious intensity.

The irony of my project? Sure, I’m escaping the world of pixels in my city walks, but at the same time I’m also returning, by translating my observations into… pixels!
