POSSIBILITIES OF BEING A CABIN by Melisa López
A5, 24 pages, Risograph printed, Saddle stitched, Softcover, 2021
The concept of "cabin" automatically refers us to a possibility of inhabiting, of protection, of creating place and of isolation. It is this conception that the atelier also gives: marking a place where to belong in a specific time to think and create. This shared function, the atelier-cabin binomial, allows us to generate our own center, a metaphor for a state of loneliness and introspection. On the other hand, remarkable trees are considered those specimens that, due to the exceptional measures within their species or because of their age, history or scientific particularity, are worthy of protection measures. At the intersection of the location of the atelier-cabin and species cataloged as remarkable trees, it is where a transperipheral territory is rethought, a limit marked at the same time by the function of the city and the co-inhabited nature, where to establish the physical place where to develop the project.
From audio recordings, drawings and different tours of the territory (Toulouse), the result was the publication of Possibilities of being a cabin. Study of the transperipheral territory of Toulouse. The printing was done in risography and allowed to work in two superimposed inks: with one ink images, and with another ink the audios of the places.
