This piece is part of the RAR project’s series of artworks, which works on the value of analogy in literature and more broadly uses books to give an example of how Eternity is realized in the world. From an archive of quotations from heterogeneous texts, original stories were created: the quote from Spense the Nth Cigarette is one of them. Taken from Dorian by Will Self, 2004 Italian edition published by Mondadori and translated by Nicoletta Vallorani, it was inserted between pages belonging to different books modified by notes annotations and clippings.
