Index (1987-2015) is a double-projection showing a series of images of different objects , and everyday scenes, which are associated with words and are arranged alphabetically in order to form a kind of dictionary. The new and unexpected regrouping of the world, as portrayed in Index,  breaks with the familiar patterns of thinking by using an experimental and playful redistribution of meanings, in the same way it was done by Foucault in his influential study The Order of Things (1966).
