My 2020 visual diary
AU FIL DU TEMPS, meaning "in the course of time", or literally: "in the thread of time".
For a whole year I kept track of my movements outside my permanent or occasional temporary residence and transferred the resulting daily patterns to paper. Due to Covid restrictions, I travelled very little and my movements mainly took place in the vicinity of my home.
Scale doesn’t matter in these motion patterns. What matters is the overall picture created by each day’s dynamics, be they chosen by me or imposed by external factors. Each day has its very own pattern. And each day is connected to the others, as the French expression so aptly and visually puts it, by the thread of time.
