AMANUENSIS (2015)

found object

 

 




One night in Paris

A guy came to me

and gave me this piece of paper.

 

He had a bunch of them.

He wrote all of those by himself.

Copying this complicated

website address.

 

It is quite ironic

That he wrote on an official

Paper of the Goverments website.

 

He just wanted to invite me

In this strange techno party

Where you can take drugs

and forget about everyday.

 

He copied to share an information

Like an amanuensis

Who forgot that Internet is now

The Amanuensis.

 

You need to log in to get to this party.

A piece of paper like this

Was useless for me.

But the act of writing it down

has shaken something

deep down inside me.

 

I had forgotten those things.

 

Nostalgia and anonymity

Security and privacy
