dc.description.abstract The experience of living between two places fosters a sensitivity to many environmental changes – in climate, culture, objects, and more. Being bound to a school environment now directs my attention to its underlying structures and customs. These sensitivities are explored as journeys recorded in a notebook. The notes mostly carry observations of humans and their material environment. Many people we meet hold a special relationship with objects and materials, as essential parts of their everyday life. They seem to completely understand the reasons for their attitude and actions. How can we have a similar relationship, well-matched to our cosmological order, with objects and materials that we touch every day? I remember my past as a printmaker and contemplate the relationship with my space and tools. What about our current environments? What is it made of? The thesis answers by examining the basic elements of words and pictures, with its many faces on paper and printed ink. We turn to the history of these forms, both general and personal, and rediscover their ingrained values. The thesis consists of two parts, a written research and an artistic work. The research tells about the concepts fundamental to the work, especially regarding the concept of seni and the history of print culture, enveloped in personal anecdotes. The artistic work is an edition of handmade books that bear the writing. The techniques and materials involved in the process are documented therein. The artistic production makes it possible for the techniques and materials that have their own journeys to tell the story together, a journey to be undertaken by the reader. The beginning and end of this journey is not explained, even in the shape of a book. Its shortcomings and vacancies are still to be filled and continued, through other memories and journeys. Numerous variables can be drawn from the materials engaged, such as paper from kapok fibers, to be qualitatively tested in its corresponding disciplines of knowledge. en
