Automatic Poiesis
Limited artists’ edition,  Another Photographer, bound in black cloth with an embossed title, printed on 170gsm matt paper, 15.5 x 20 cm, 38 pages, 2010
The book is compiled of a number of pinhole photographs and two pieces of text.  The series of photographs depicted in the book react with light when presented in a gallery and disappear.  The poem at the beginning of the book accompanies the photographs in the gallery.  The book was created as a limited edition catalogue to accompany the piece so that something remained at the end off the work’s installation.  The piece at the back of the book is an ekphrastic response to the piece by the philosopher Alexander Garcia Duttmann.                                                                                                                       http://laurenwinsor.co.uk/Auto-P

Likewise, I mix my personal history of becoming a mother, with the one of my grandmother, and I make an artistic cartography of my first experiences of motherhood through drawings, texts and painted maps.

In these last 10 years Colombia has been omnipresent in my research as artist and activist. Colombia as one of the countries with more displaced people in the world, as the abandoned homeland of refugees I’ve encountered in Europe and Brazil, as a land sacrificed by conflict and greed. We set to develop a project with local children from an afro-Colombian and/or Embera community. We think of a book, preferably a bilingual Embera/Spaninh version that can be used by teachers in the future.                                                                                                                                                    http://www.marieangebordas.com/

Detail package
Handmade edition, self- published, archive Somerset Paper 300gr, 44 x 22 cm, 18 pages, 2012
The title “Detail package” is a term borrowed from the architectural jargon and refers to the documents that accompany an architectural construction. These documents are tools that define the precise way the parts of the building must be built so that the whole structure comes together as one.
In Greece the extremist right has emerged from obscurity, to finally gain a significant position in the parliament.
This book researches and tries to analyse the inner drive and the techniques used to manipulate and form a new self residing in contemporary society. How does one decide to devote the self to extreme ideology, characterized by hatred and brutality?

Double blind
Offset print, 500 books, Revolver Books, Berlin, hardcover, 17 x 24 cm, 100 pages, 2012
The work ‘double blind – a human geneticists photographs – an artists photographs’ is an artistic examination of the origin of knowledge in the field of natural sciences, where the biological sex is determined.
Equipped with a compact camera, a human geneticist was asked to photograph all the things in her workplace that seemed important to her. The result was a total of thirty-nine black and white photographs. By contrast, Denis’ colour photographs in the ‘double blind’ series provide a record of the procedures performed on a blood sample to determine a person´s sex and shows in the end the portrait of a person – through the chromosomes.

Columbus Day
Handmade limited edition, self-published, card, paper and pigment ink prints, 23.5 x 21 cm, 56 pages, 2012
Columbus Day is a personal exploration of New York’s Central Park on Columbus Day. It provides a stylistic sample of private inscriptions in public places and simultaneously functions for the photographer as a statement of being. As a photographic book, it plays on the sequential nature of the medium and the characteristics of the digital image to create elaborate –sometimes humorous– visual rhymes and rhythms, and as such represents another way of organizing and positioning oneself in time and space.
