"Reinforce your skill", "return the car twice when changing line", "write three times each line"... so says the old typing manual, each of these indications together form a kind of litany, which is unintelligible. Based on the exercises that are done to learn to "draw" accounting tables and tabulations; in this project, each line drawn, each stroke of the same key, each stitch, make up through a gesture made repeatedly; a series of drawings that seek to move away from the precise fulfillment of indications and seek to approach the interpretation through a practice that, although it is methodical, suggests a procedure of creation.
