Additional information:
In this series, from 2004 to 2007, I collected material from my daily life such as tickets, bills, letters and whatever you may find in your pockets after a day spent outside, in one plastic bottle each month. The concept of this work is to give importance to what occupied for some instants our existence, valueless objects that otherwise would have been trashed: what is important is not the object itself, but the time in which it existed. Labeling each bottle with the date underlines the connection of this project with the concept of time ordered in an intimate and subjective way, like a journal of memories.
