Taking up the rules used in the building of Micronesian stick charts, Carte mémoire (Memory Card/Map)offers a primitive and personnal cartography of the city of Paris. Built on an oversimplified pattern, with no respect of distance, it sets up a support to the memorization of space and it flows, representing the remembered spots as islands of an intimate achipelago.
