Poetry of the Earth – Poetry of the Earth – Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed… Maya Rochat’s aesthetic essays are printed on the page, offering a visual experience where matter emerges in an explosion of color.

This project was born of a shared desire with lithographer Roger Emmenegger to create a book that would be a “work of art”, combining research notebooks and surfaces for exploration. Drawing on experimentation with printing technologies, the sensuality of the material invites itself onto the pages of the book, expressing the poetry of the language of the printed arts.

Through painting, photography and text, a journey towards a dreamlike version of life appears page after page. The work becomes a kind of atlas, an imagined itinerary through a fragile organic world in transformation. This work shows the mutation of “Nature” and underlines the importance of living matter, on a structural level. Like the process of valorization that underlies it, it proposes an approach to the “book” object that links the real to the imaginary, the informational to the emotional.

Poetry of the Earth invites us to reconsider our relationship with our immediate environment, and offers us the vision of a nature transfigured to awaken in us an imaginary vector of meaning – a necessary condition for all action.
