TEXTUM or weave, is a project that works with the theme of communication through words. In the myth it finds the metaphor of weaving words as the basis of language, and therefore the possibility of communication. A geographical itinerary provides the necessary sound and visual documentation for the project in the form of recordings. In the words of Chantal Maillard: “In Textum the word is established between the visual and the auditory. As Bartrihari understood it, there is no difference between sound and substance: forms are the visual manifestation of inaudible sound in all its tones. From there comes the idea of the creative word”*
