Rush

I meet a man who practices metal detection.
He takes me on his sprees and lends me a machine for me to try it.
We roam, eyes riveted on the ground, untiringly. The observed practice proposes a parallel use of the ground, brings attention on what we do not see.
These are extracts of a meeting of the object by its shores, the dead by their leftovers. All is engulfed from a red patina and I do not know anymore if its rust or earth.

Lecture de terrain

Under the title Ground reading, the five double pages composed of writings and screenshots of The rush witness of a field experience conducted by the quest, like an initiation rite.
