The first image in the Proust project is old books. An excerpt of the introductory quotation: For a long time I would go to bed early. Sometimes, the candle barely out, my eyes closed so quickly that I did not have time to tell myself: “I’m falling asleep.” And half an hour later the thought that it was time to look for sleep would awaken me; I would make as if to put away the book which I imagined was still in my hands, and to blow out the light. Marcel Proust Swann's Way
Visual prototypes for this section are underway. Drawing on the palette of wines and ambers of old books, the notion of activation and accessing fragments of long-term memories is conveyed using a combination of color and grayscale.
