April 1898    (series)


The basis of this work is due to the existence of a letter written by Cousin Berta in April 1898. It reflects a period of time in history and a segment of reality. The letter isn't shown completely, as enlarged fragments of it have been transferred on to a structured surface. The reproduction of this image, in to a series based on similarity, transforms the format of a letter, as visibly isolated sections, into elements of a repeating pattern.
