Captures éditions

2/5 falls into the artists’ books series published by Captures. Four guests per year work within the same space of an open A2 format sheet (420 x 594mm), giving rise to various proposals depending on how the sheet is folded. This new collection is based on the principle of subscription – every three months members receive a new artist’s publication delivered to their mailboxes.
Graphic design: Jocelyne Fracheboud. Photoengraving: Bruno Voidey.

From the invitation of the 2/5 collection Francesc Ruiz decided to design a truck that folds in on itself, as if it were one of the Transformer robots or the image of the 1:1 scale bus of Mason Williams. The author’s interestin the world of logistics, distribution and affections, makes him pose this intervention as if it were a letter of love and friendship. The author reproduces one of the trucks of the Spanish moving company Cariño, a name that besides being a toponym of a Galician town, can also be translated as affection or sweettie. The truck is driven by a yellow heart-shaped emoticon that is nothing more than a synthesis of the good things we receive by mail, a microdose of serotonin, a generic cupid’s crush that serves to cheer up our lives in these strange times.
