Jean-Claude Loubières: "The content involves a written text with photos of letters drawn with a finger in a form of water lentil that floats in marshes and pools and whose botanic name is simply Callitriche stagnalis (this is from the Greek, kallos: beautiful – thrix: hair) [common name pond water starwort]. Each page was dipped in paraffin which gives a mysterious effect."
