I plant a tree


poster project with Mohamed Abdulla

Aley / Lebanon, 2005


Two-week poster project in Lebanon in which every day a new poster is hung over the poster from the day before.


Beginning with the photograph of a ruined house – I plant a tree – the next day a photo of another house – I water the tree – a third poster – I measure the tree – a blueprint of the same house, a trace of memory – I sit in the tree’s shade ... a rhythm of images and words, a poem about the destroyed resort Aley which renews itself day for day, with each poster, with each layer.
