This book is about abstraction, language and the inability to influence the course of history. During the Corona epidemic, Bartels was forced to lock herself up in her home and garden and started working on this book. She photographed plants and used them to make paper, which she then coloured with berries and fruits from the garden. She photographed the result and processed it in grids. This is how the abstract images were created. She says: “I wondered where these abstractions came from. Was it the unreality of the whole situation or was I just tired of all those voices screaming to be heard? I think it was the latter and now I see these images as a temporary checkout.
