Sadly today I said goodbye to my little garret and dear friends in Antibes after five weeks – which has flown – and landed in rainy London where I will continue my research for the early parts of my story.
One of the many memorable landmarks in Antibes is this sculpture which is located right on the headland looking out to sea. Created by Spanish sculptor, Jaume Plensa and entitled Nomade, it’s eight metres high and also known as the ‘man of letters’.
Jaume Plensa: “Telles des briques, les lettres ont une potentialité de construction, elles nous permettent de construire une pensée”: ‘Like bricks, these letters have construction potential, they allow us to build a thought.’
Hopefully I will be inspired to find the right letters to construct and convey my thoughts!
