Printing lead letters, 400 cm Ø

Small typographic lead strips are strewn over the floor. Dust from dismantled words forms a chaotic mass into which the language is broken up.
The lead material contains in itself the potential of degeneration and loss of language, symptoms of saturnism.
The art piece sounds like an auto-da-fe, dark ceremony emblematic of the worst tactics used for thinking standardization, and raises from their ashes the block capitals for new scores to be improvised.
Entropic phenomenon, the inert matter turns into energy and opens to other possible languages.
