Composed of 16 prints associated with a poem by Alberto Ávila Salazar, Palo Alto is an artist’s book where the architecture and some animal forms derived from the Gallery of Paleontology in Paris are mixed. One can perceive the influence of the “Prisons” of Piranesi where the structure becomes a labyrinth, where phantom skeletons wander in search of their own sense. Of course… the poem speaks of the story of a lost love.
