Exhibit 110

[ - Vincennes (France) - 7-9 november, 2009. - download (4.4 Mb) ]


Le Bourget
This acquisition comes with a story: its reason to be is in the picture above, which is a screenshot from Google's streetview, that I took on june 23rd 2009. If you look carefully, at the bottom, middle of the picture, you will see that there is something wound around the two adjacent poles of the small metal fences. I thought that just might be a bit of tape ... The spot is at the height of nr. 25 of the avenue de la Division Leclerc in Le Bourget. But was it? The possibility that it might be possible to actually "find" tapes in Streetview had occurred to me before, but I never came as close to a potential candidate. I decided to put it to the test, even though of course there would be a big chance that even if this were a bit of tape, it meanwhile would no longer be there. I went to check, on thursday july 30th, as I had something to do not too far from there. Is thus that on that thursday I walked all the way up from the Porte de la Villette to Le Bourget. All of the finds that come together in this acquisition, I picked up underway. And then, of course, I did find the spot that I'd pictured in Streetview. Better still, that what could be seen in the picture had stayed in place, all the time that had passed since Google camera's had passed.
It was not a bit of tape, though, but the sort of red-brownish woolen ribbon that you see in the picture below ...
