Poet Fool (2016) is a limited edition photobook presenting 100+ images of raw graffiti randomly encountered on the streets of Europe and beyond. Accumulated between 2011-2015, the snapshots form a survey of ideas and experiences derived from signifiers imprinted anonymously in public spaces. It contains words and symbols that function as confession, propaganda or retort, each one carrying personal and/or universal values. The book aims to catalogue recurring themes in contemporary society, from opposing political ideologies to declarations of love, hate, hope and despair, for the purpose of initiating a reflection on how we live today.
Part of an ongoing interest in digital archive, artist books, signs and surveys.
