Bio: Paul Memmi has a passion for signs, signs we send to each other, and that some make into great works of art or great thoughts.
This passion led him to become a translator - a messenger as well as an interpreter - and to teach his profession at university.
It has also made him write for cinema and create fine art works. His collages illustrate his website.
If the subtitled image aims to be perceived as a ready-made expression, one can also be fascinated by its aesthetic as a collage, that is, according to Eisenstein, cinema itself.
