dones, espai, treball, signature, politica (women, space, work, signature, politics) part of the realization of a list of nineteen random words that I later searched one by one in the archives of the Institut d'Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya (IEFC), in order to know the image equivalence of each of these words.
Subsequently, after a selection, of nineteen words, five remained: "dones, espai, treball, signature, politica", those that interested me the most not only because of what the word itself contains, but also because of the file-word-image relationship these five final words gave me.
The result was five photographs equivalent to these five words from different periods in the history of Catalonia and Europe that I accompanied with five thread counters, one on each photograph, evidencing a bodily gesture of some character in the five images.
Finally, only these five gestures are extracted and each one is reproduced on a white paper in the same position as in the original photo.
The project dones, espai, treball, signatura, politica maintains its name in Catalan because those are the exact words that I used to search the IEFC archive and those equivalent to a unique code that is equivalent to a series of images that only remained those five.
