T-card planners have been diverted from their original purpose and used to support fragmented photographs of camera prototypes.

Beyond their bureaucratic character and their belonging to the 20th century, these modular panels suggest the concepts of labour division and work organization in time and space. By meticulously breaking down large prints into small cards, which I then mixed together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle to be reassembled, I sought to reiterate a laborious process in order to highlight the complexity of the elaboration of these devices. By reconstructing the initial images piece by piece to the extent that I could, I also sought to recreate by hand a form of analog glitch, as a nod to glitch-art, a practice consisting of introducing errors into digital files, which in its early days, in the early 2000s, was claimed to be subversive and anti-capitalist.
