This luminary, entirely personalized, is composed of X-ray photographs of the person whose year of birth figures on the title of this work. «BIRTH 1935 is a discreet portrait, an image in negative of the suggested inside of a body, a unique spectral imprint. The ghostly silhouette of the bones, fundamental to one’s identity, are the virtual carriers of genetic heritage. They reveal themselves discreetly on the lampshade of BIRTH 1935, which trades the light box for a magic lantern.
