” I once wrote an article that attempted, through literary aspirations, to tie our willingness to utilize memory with gaming and strategic and beneficial outcomes. The simple idea outlined in the writing was that when something is at stake, our memory functions on a high level. When we are asked for something specific, where something is dear, or where we can gain, our memory works incredibly. We place highly-specific energy on conducting a practical outcome to increase our chances of opportunity. In this, the proximity or desire attached to a game or routine to be remembered is at the fundament of our ability to accentuate its importance. If there is no positive outcome, or we do not avoid a negative outcome by choice of memorialization, the attempt at memory will fail.”

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:
“I received a phone call in December 2017 and was told my father had passed away. In Buenos Aires, during the days that followed, I looked very closely at the family albums in his house. I then felt the need to make a book to honor him, as this was the object through which he also expressed himself.
I hope the reader lives the book as an experience. Whoever has it in their hands is encouraged to look at it closely and far away, to touch it, to look for combinations and find relationships in it. It is a book that invites the viewer to play. And I think that this is the best possible tribute to my father, inventor of the madeleine game (el juego de la madalena) and many others.”
