The installation 3400 g - 1,100 ° C examines a selection of photographs taken during the Second World War by the artist's great-grandfather, representing among other things two plane crashes, and the black cardboard box which contained the entire photographic collection, counting more than three hundred images. Through a careful study of the photographed scenes and the production of a copy of the box, the work questions the conditions of production and survival of these documents and the means to decipher them.

3400 g - 1,100 ° C is the first chapter of the project Interpretations of a Black Box.
