Departing early February 1913, returning in the first days of May, Alberto Nunes jr was travelling with his father, Alberto Nunes and his portable camera. He recorded decisive moments of the trip, on the Union Pacific train, aboard the trans-Pacific liners SS Mongolia and Tenyo Maru — on 2nd class, with Chineses immigrants on steerage — some impressive night fire in Manila, buying toys in a Japaneses shop and the early sewing machines shops and offices. A member of the Nunes family was working for the growing Singer Company : Uncle Luis had became a Singer representative in Manila when he had visibly a terrible accident.
We can imagine the album open when the travellers were telling magical travel recollections to the young ones. Some pencil notes, verso, and ink captions, recto, supported the failing or rather transforming memories, human transmission is always in progress, opposed to the dry and perfect restitutions of machine brains.
The album contains 89 original photos by Alberto junior, printed on postcard papers, together with some printed views and a Japanese portrait with the curious note: “Geisha que attendo a mi abuelo Alberto J. Nunes en una casa del Yoshi-Wara”. (The Geisha who took care of grandfather Alberto in one of the Yoshi-Wara special houses).

The Great Race called by the Jade Emperor:
“An ancient folk story tells that Cat and Rat were both very bad at swimming.
Although they were poor swimmers, they were both quite intelligent. To get to the meeting called by the Jade Emperor, they had to cross a river to reach the meeting place.

Cat and Rat decided that the best and fastest way to cross the river was to hop on the back of Ox.

“Frontiera hipnótica de la conciencia” (English presentation)
Serge Plantureux presents three young French artists under the age of thirty, who articulate their reflection around hypnosis guiding to the border of consciousness, aiming to modify time and space perception. This is a resolutely contemporary notion. Our post-truth era reveals a multitude of fields in which, trough creation, imaginary and reality are mixed-up. To such a point further than what is “possible” or “improbable”, opening perspectives on bottomless chasms.
Lyes Hammadouche questions the limits and boundaries of time contemplation trough moving mirrors filled with universes, guiding the gaze to an altered state of consciousness.
Théophile Bouchet draws bodies flirting with waves, floating on the surface of awareness. The eyes are invited towards optical boundaries.
Colin Lusinchi realizes Martian surface samples from possible coring for mining and colonization without limits. These Martian cores testify to the impacts of meteorites and invite the passerby to the cosmic journey,
