Isles of Maybe

Isles of Maybe is a book, a cut and paste exercise that through texts and images explains the human and collective drama we were (are) going through.

The pandemic had me visiting/living at my parents life-long home.

Have not stayed there in more than a decade. 

I have my own home, I live with Perla, a dog.

Their house is a scattered collection of all kinds of objects. 

My mother is a Biologist and her archive of books, journals, papers, and academic life is vast. 

National Geographic magazines, a classic.

With the intention of decluttering their home, I decided to put the yellow collection into use.

Time to say good-bye to those beautiful images.

The archive comprehended the years 1960-80 more or less. 

Isles of maybe was put together.

Over the large dining room table me and a magnifying glass. 

I cut all the words, phrases, letters, and photographs that fit into what I felt.

An improvisation of the instant, interiorize, fantastic places. 

A day to day present.
