This mural consists of approximately 1000 imaginary titles of books, movies, songs, etc that I have been writing since 2007. Each of these titles was stamped with black ink, one by one, using two stamping machines specially developed to make the task easier. In collaboration with the education department all the titles were made into a braille book. Simultaneously, I recorded myself reading them into a vinyl that was available for blind visitors and played at the exhibit as part of the public program called ‘If the eye could touch’.
