"Drawing invites to consider,  from a benevolent angle, sites and situations that may generate more rejection than attraction. It allows a better understanding of the complexities of our time creating their own way of harmony and poetry. Cars everywhere, bundles of railways, heterogeneous structures, overground, undergrounds. To the word “chaos”  I prefer those of complexity or hybridity. The city is the simultaneity of various situations, even antagonistic, all claiming legitimacy. The drawing I practice seeks to take all that into account. To capture these heterogeneities is to take cavalier perspectives, “à vol d’oiseau”, axonometric views."

Two important characteristics of maps should be noticed. A map is not the territory it represents, but, if correct, it has a similar structure to the territory, which accounts for its usefulness. … If we reflect upon our languages, we find at best they must be considered only as maps.
