    This photobook is based on a quote by Vilém Flusser: In ‘Towards a philosophy of photography’ he writes ”It is the surfaces and no longer the textual lines that primarily codify our world.

Planes such as photographs, TV and cinema screens and shop windows have become the carriers of the information that program us. The dominant media are now the images and no longer the texts. A powerful counter-revolution of images against text is underway. However, it is necessary to discern that in this counter-revolution, it is a case of an entirely different type of image that never existed before. The images that program us are postalphabetic and not pre-alphabetic, as are the images of the past.” Reflecting to his philosophy, I photographed letter-like road marks, then I composed montages according to the words from Flusser’s quote, and each page of the photomontages represent the letters covered in the text on the opposite page. The photos are made of letters, but the words are unreadable. Read Less
