When I found the regional newspaper dating back to my date of birth, April 12 1997, I created facsimiles of different other articles published in this daily paper. I assembled them on an A0 poster. I chose various publications depending on their connection to my birth, my first name, the city I live in, my leisures. I also added two personal photographs to amplify the personal and private idea. One can also notice that the poster can be read in three different ways, reminding us of a spiral, the symbol of life and evolution, but the symbol of the baby’s rotation in his/her mother’s womb as well. Finally, trying to make this poster more playful and happy, I coloured it manually using colouring pencils, which reminded me of my love for drawing and colouring when I was a child.
