Ha, so there I am talking about looking, or seeing. And thinking about a caption for this one. Which makes me realize how easy I take sight for granted. How easy it is to think the whole world can see everything on instagram.

Voici le petit chalet de nos exploits littéraires : trois petites pièces de théâtre et un début de roman ! #oulipo #atelier #ecriture #vaudou #lefestinnu #biarritz #iraty #creation

Re-read “Things” this weekend. The emotional ramifications of the commuted value of tying your life to the pursuit of objects couldn’t be better explored than this novel does. Things are the result of a life lived, not the meaning for it. #perec #oulipo #potential #newstructures

Oulipo anyone‽
In 2016 I got a bit too much into those pretentious French post-structuralists and had lots of fun creating 'Please Complete the Following Sentences', a series of illustrations I will post here soon. In the original works, images and text aren't supposed to be swapped around, but I made this double-text block, hand-bound book that works a bit like Queneau's 'Cent mille milliards de poèmes', whereby the drawings and texts can be combined to generate over 10,000 iterations.
Ps: how do you feel about the interrobang‽ Do we need more punctuation marks‽
Pps: just found the hashtag #interrobangingtheshitoutofparenting and it deserves more than a single use on Instagram.

87 years ago // Back in 1922, Raymond Roussel had invented an insulation system of his own design, "using vacuum to prevent the wastage of heat for anything concerning construction and transportation", as reads the patent he applied for. Being quite serious about his engineering venture, RR had a small experimental cubic cabin constructed, approximately 3.50 meters in width, height and depth. After finally selling the estate in 1931, RR realizes that it would likely be destroyed by the new owner, so he becomes concerned with the danger of the destruction of the vacuum containers if unappropriately handled. He eventually asks a bailiff to carry out an assessment on 16 July 1931, to absolve him of all responsibility.

Il y a 87 ans // Raymond Roussel avait imaginé dès 1922 un système d’isolation de sa propre invention, « utilisant le vide à la non-perdition de la chaleur pour tout ce qui concerne l’habitation et la locomotion”, selon les termes de la demande de brevet qu’il déposa alors. Prenant son rôle d’ingénieur calorifugeur très au sérieux, RR fît construire, sous un hangar situé au fond de sa propriété de Neuilly, un petit cabanon expérimental cubique d’environ 3,50 mètres de côté. Des récipients plats en verre sous vide d’air étaient inclus dans les briques et le mortier, ainsi que dans les panneaux de la porte de ce modèle réduit de maison. Ayant vendu sa propriété en 1931, RR réalise qu’elle serait probablement détruite par le nouveau propriétaire, y compris le cabanon expérimental. Il s’inquiète alors du danger de destruction des flasques sous vide d’air, si des dispositions particulières n’étaient pas prises. Il fait venir un huissier le 16 juillet 1931 pour établir un procès-verbal le dégageant de toute responsabilité.

85 years ago // In the morning of 14 July 1933, French writer Raymond Roussel (RR) is found dead, lying on the floor, in his room no. 224 at Hotel Et Des Palmes in Palermo, Sicily. The autopsy confirms that RR died of an overdose of barbiturates he had been addicted to for a few years, desperately in search of the lost feeling of universal glory that he had indulged when writing his first poems, at the age of 17. Sonéryl, the drug that killed RR, is produced by the Parisian Company of Chemical Expansion, surely an attractive proposition for him. However, the records kept by his friend, Charlotte Dufrène, post jaw-dropping intakes of many other drugs that she had smuggled herself on an emergency supply mission to Paris a week earlier. 20 tablets of Somnothyrill + 1 bottle of Neurinase on one day,, or 34 tablets of Rutonal two nights prior his death.
According to the records of Palermo Police, RR passed between midnight and 2:00 a.m. He was 56.

Il y a 85 ans // Au matin du 14 juillet 1933, l'écrivain Raymond Roussel (RR) est trouvé mort, allongé sur le sol de sa chambre 224 de l’Hotel Et Des Palmes à Palerme en Sicile. L’autopsie confirme que RR est mort d’une surdose de barbituriques qu’il consommait abusivement depuis quelques années, dans une recherche désespérée du sentiment de gloire universelle qui l’avait étreint à dix-sept ans lors de la rédaction de ses premiers poèmes. Le Sonéryl, la drogue qui a tué RR, est produit par la Compagnie parisienne d’expansion chimique, un programme certainement attractif pour lui. Les carnets de son amie, Charlotte Dufrène, affichent des quantités stupéfiantes de bien d’autres drogues qu’elle avait d’ailleurs dû rapporter elle-même d’une mission de réapprovisionnement à Paris une semaine auparavant. 20 cachets de Somnothyrill + 1 bouteille de Neurinase un jour, ou 34 cachets de Rutonal deux nuits avant sa mort.
Selon le rapport de la Police de Palerme, RR est mort entre minuit et 2 heures du matin. Il avait 56 ans.
