The research for four-leaf clovers is absurd, time-consuming, tinged of mysticism and popular superstition.
As trying to find the needle in the haystack, it’s a quest for the impossible.
However, with patience, obstinacy and luck, we find. We discover a particular acuity, an eye.
We experiment gestures, ways of proceeding, sorting, until inventing a method, a science, an art. The project, conducted over more or less extended periods, proves to be a field of observation of learning itself, a study of our research behaviours.
