Publisher Note

The concept of "cabin" automatically refers us to a possibility of inhabiting, of protection, of creating place and of isolation. It is this conception that the atelier also gives: marking a place where to belong in a specific time to think and create. This shared function, the atelier-cabin binomial, allows us to generate our own center, a metaphor for a state of loneliness and introspection.
On the other hand, remarkable trees are considered those specimens that, due to the exceptional measures within their species or because of their age, history or scientific particularity, are worthy of protection measures.
At the intersection of the location of the atelier-cabin and species cataloged as remarkable trees, it is where a transperipheral territory is rethought, a limit marked at the same time by the function of the city and the co-inhabited nature, where to establish the physical terrain where to develop the draft.

From audio recordings, drawings and different tours of the territory, the result was the publication of "Possibilities of being a cabin". Study of the transperipheral territory of Toulouse.

Risography printing made it possible to work in two superimposed inks, and thus print images in another color of the recorded audio of the places on top of the photographs.

It project took place in Le BBB Centre d’art (Toulouse) with the collaboration of Jean-Luc Camus, scientific mediator of the Jardin du Museum Borderouge; Alain Chainel, member of the Citizen Council of the Toulouse Nord districts; the Bibliothèque d'étude du patrimoine de Toulouse; Fatiha EL Babili, researcher and pedagogical manager of the Jardin Botanique Henri Gaussen- University of Toulouse III-Paul Sabatier; the members of the Micro-Forêts collective, Toulouse en transition.
