From Hannah's website:
"In his Six Memos, Italo Calvino describes his collection of short stories Mr. Palomar
as "a kind of diary dealing with minimal problems of knowledge, ways of
establishing relationships with the world, and gratifications and
frustrations in the use of both silence and words. This series
of watercolor drawings is a response to "Reading a Wave", the chapter in
which Mr. Palomar stands on the shore and looks at, or attempts to look
at, a wave. His endeavor proves to be impossible, as the infinite
contingencies of the wave prevent it from ever coming into being before
his eyes. Always on the verge of arriving, wave dissolves and drifts
perpetually into not-wave. Mr. Palomar's observations become a search
for a hypothetical entity; the search itself reveals that entity to be
only apprehensible through its fugitive traces - subjectively sensed,
fraught with contingency, eruptive, ephemeral, imaginary."
