Emprestei meus cadernos

(I lent my notebooks)


series of 10 photomontages

made on PhotoFunia

Emprestei meus cadernos (I lent my notebooks, 2021) is a series of 10 photomontages in which notebook pages appear enlarged in urban spaces. The sheets, filled with handwriting notes, were scanned from recent notebooks by the artist and fitted into mockups of billboards, building facades and advertising screens, as if they were actually exposed in those places. In a school context, there is the idea that when you lend someone a notebook, you don't know where the information that is there might end up. This work is a visual essay on the disproportion between the permanence and intimacy of handwritten words and the uncontrollable digital paths that run through personal data and typed words.
