Sablier is a text about place, time and becoming. It is part of The Spirit of the Time / L’esprit du temps, a writing project based on colour. I have used commercially available colour palettes from Benjamin Moore, Ralph Lauren, Behr, Earthpaint, Taubmans, and others as based elements to create a geo-poetry of Sydney but also of the Red Centre region in the Northern Territory.

Sablier est un texte sur le lieu, le temps et le devenir. Le poème fait partie de
L’esprit du temps / The Spirit of the Time, un projet d’écriture sur la couleur. J’ai utilisé les cartes des échantillons de couleurs disponibles dans le commerce — les nuanciers de Benjamin Moore, Ralph Lauren, Behr, Earthpaint, Taubmans et d’autres — comme éléments de base pour créer une géopoésie de la ville de Sydney, surtout, mais aussi de la région du Territoire du Nord, en Australie.
