Unused rolls of photographic film, brought from Paris to Kyoto for an artist residency (and left unexposed as I failed to imagine a photographic project to conduct in Japan) are sent on an open-ended journey. The film is mailed abroad, or given to visiting friends and family. Over the course of a few months, traveling through postal systems and checked luggage to Tokyo, Beirut, New York, Beijing and Seoul, the pieces of unexposed film are eventually collected in Paris and taken to the darkroom where the X-ray traces of their anabases are revealed in prints •
