Throughout the year and on the occasion of each of our trips, we collect samples of materials to produce colored inks. We systematically test the inks we manufacture on 16cm x 12cm pieces of paper.
The coloring matter that we use in the context of this activity can come from dyeing plants whose coloring properties have been known for several centuries. This coloring matter can also come from more atypical materials such as waste or fragments of small crushed objects.
In this way, over time, we began to build a large color chart that tells the landscapes we crossed. This color chart can be displayed either completely or in the form of a sequence.
