Some time in May 2003, as I was coming back by train from Kuala Lumpur, I noticed an electric line along the track, running all the way from Johor to the Singapore station. At times crumbling under the thick cover of vegetation, only to later reappear, standing strong and proud with all its wiring intact, this electric line was a piece of the past which for some reason had withstood the onslaught of modernity.

Retro Specks Future Pixs: the Book
Something rather unexpected happened in the course of putting up the exhibition, something that eventually led to the production of a book. While working on the graphic explaining the layout of the installation, it suddenly dawned on me that the floor plan of RSFP was reproducing exactly the layout of the seminal 1977 drawing in which I purposely explored for the first time the notions of time and space and their nature in painting and photography. The idea to trace the progression between these two significant moments of my career took shape in the blink of an eye. And as fate would have it, I was lucky enough to be given the needed budget for this project by the team of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. Some things are just meant to be.
