Established the idea of a book as an object, transparent container; the word chosen as its content; selected traditional techniques to build the printed message; Dump the text ‘as palavras’, by José Saramago inside. Words in two languages, the original and its companion in Spanish, sometimes so close and sometimes so distant in the same space.

Saramago’s words masterfully state the arguments that motivate the author: the opposites. From the full word, to silence, to emptiness, to the absence that becomes presence.
