[ fax installation ]

Stretching the Memorial is a fax installation done in a state burocratic office which was abandoned in year 2000 remaining untoched till today. The whole wall designed by the clerk (posters of politicians, drawings, maps...) was copyed by fax stretching the original. A new wall, a memorial of the office was built. A memorial which was - because of the nature of the thermal paper - destined to dissapear before the original clerk's office.
