Décalage is a book that combines archive images and text, creating a fiction based on sound, visual and temporal movements. The images correspond to photographs of acoustic locators, devices used to detect the distance and direction of an object through sound. The photographs have been found on the Internet and show a great variety of these devices in different sizes, shapes and uses. The text starts from the history of these devices to build a fictional survival story in which the sound and the visual intermingle. Physically, the book incorporates elements that are present in the human-machine relationship, between skin and metal. It also causes sound to appear in a predominantly visual medium.
