A POINT WHERE ALL POINTS CONVERGE

Ink on book pages. 21 drawings. 7×5 inches each. 2013

On his short story, “The Aleph”, the Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges describes a spot where everything that exists in the universe could be seen without overlaps or transparencies. He calls it the point where all points converge.

For this work I took the pages of the story and fill them with very small dots, literary taking Borges description of the Aleph and turning the space of the written words into a representation of this impossible figure. The story hides below the drawing in the same way the whole perception of the universe is blocked by the limitations of our memory to process and remember everything that exists, turning our recollections into a blurry map of scattered images.
