L’écriture éphémère by Fernan Carrière


“Most of the time, writing is ephemeral… menus or reminders left on the fridge, note taking, grocery lists, announcements… We don’t usually conserve these writings. Most of the time also, the tools we use to write these ephemeral notes… pencils, chalk, even ball-points, don’t last much. Using them is destroying them. We tend to not even notice their presence. Yet, they are scattered through our daily lives.” – Fernan Carrière
