The extraordinary project, titled Ecriture Infinie, focuses on the individual and idiosyncratic flow of writing instead of the content of the messages inscribed.
Ecriture Infinie celebrates the complex human act of writing that is being eclipsed every day by digital technology. The process of writing each inscription in the immense tomes is filmed. And, as each book is filled, it is sealed, wrapped and secreted away in a hidden location as a time capsule for future generations to decipher and interpret.
The final volume of the project series is being filled in collaboration with the people who publish and market Moleskine notebooks. You can get a look at this part of Ecriture Infinie on the Moleskine produced video.
You can check out the rest of the project on the artists’ own video posts.
