The author doesn't follow up or control the envelopes
and images. In a certain way, the envelopes could be seen as small
closed bottles thrown to the sea with secret messages inside; it
is the action and the process in itself which give sense to the
work. The images imprinted on the Photolatente papers have no sense
in themselves insofar as they have a content. They function more
like a contingent element than a "finished work". In fact,
we could say the Photolatente pictures don't really exist.
However the project gives freedom to the observer, who occasionally
could join with others, follow up or control a determinate quantity
of envelopes or developed pictures. This fact could be understood
as a materialisation of the project. The author therefore doesn't
follow up the project, but at the same time anybody interested in
doing so can do it who.
