Layers of texts, of time, have been deposited. The process of research, marked out by a multiplicity of moments of writing, gave place to an accumulation of seizures of the present. Sedimented presents became fragments of the past or projects of the future.

“The cohabitation of different temporalities rests on an unstable balance: between a time that unfolds following a trajectory and a multiplicity of other times that interfere, overlap, and juxtapose: the present of reflection, of rereading, the moment retained in a testimony or in a trace, the times of other people’s voices, the digressions. In search of a present to seize, to capture, to reactivate, I wrote in vertigo, relying on the incessant flow of time, living it with intensity, like a dancer who embraces the instability of the moment to risk new imbalances. This present has become a living matter, an infinite reserve of impulses.” Marian del Valle.
