(043) LETTERS. 1999

On the first of July 1999, five trucks transported five letters from Madrid to Castellón. The five letters had been built in white reinforced concrete, in the city of Madrid. The five trucks were equal, the five letters (20 tons each) were different. The drivers had telephones so that they could attend to the orders of the directors of the action. As they moved through the landscape and the towns, the five letters formed a word.

The emergence of a word, an intruder, implies a culturization of landscape through thought. A culturization in motion that leaves no lasting mark. An ephemeral action, limited to 440 kilometres and ten hours of travel. The task of art is to generate thoughts able to propose new experiences. The task of photography is not to represent or imitate what which exists, but to summarize an experience. So the pictures from this trip reveal the process of a different experience.
