Charlie Citron making speach on Franck's Speach Machine, AlytusArt School.

I was in Alytus. No, I wasn't there. In fact, I was there. But how ? It wasn't a physical presence, I hadn't  any exchange of atoms with Alytus. But one object is allotted to me. « Charlie Citron making speech on Franck's Speech Machine, AlytusArt School. _photo by Vytautas V. Stanionis », is a caption on the internet site I read with pleasure. I imagine the sound of his voice, the environment, the content of his speech, the attitude of people. The manner Charlie's went up on the machine. A  photograph is the ideal support to produce fictions. We  can explore it. I can see Charlie seated, in the same position as the silhouette on drawings I sent for the making of the machine. I can see also Redas with a camera, and some people listening on the stairs and on the floor. My impression is completely partial. Maybe false. It's just a supposed moment. With a distance.
