Off the coast in the north of the Netherlands, an extinct, prehistoric volcano lies dormant in the layers of the earth and beneath the waters of the Wadden Sea. This volcano is 160 million years old and it was active for several million years. In the 1970s, while drilling for gas, volcanic specimens were found and thereby this volcano was discovered. Eva Olthof invited filmmaker/writer Peter Delpeut, researcher/writer Siri Driessen and visual artist Roman Signer to write a contribution for this publication. Delpeut wrote a fictive story, Driessen wrote an analysis of the photograph, and Signer send me a publication of his works on the phenomenon of volcanoes.
The publication is part of the series DAI PUBLICATIONS which is a collection of artist’s books issued by the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie (WT). The 2011 edition consists of 16 publications.

In December 2011 Stefano and Eva worked together on an exhibition in a small artist-run space in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The exhibition was called At the end of the world I exist and consisted of two diverse installations. The work on display was mirroring an ongoing discourse about traveling, distance and the transportive potentialities of the image starting from each our interests – respectively photography and architecture. Six months later, they organized an event at Schloss Ringenberg, Germany. During the night the work took the form of two presentations and a book, in order to broaden the performative side of the installation presented before and to transport the previous space into the new room, the Rittersaal. The presentations and the book touch, amongst other things, upon a postcard from Tenerife and the portrait of Emily Dickinson, respectively the features of the two specific exhibition spaces and the furniture that inhabits them. Artist and writer Miek Zwamborn was invited to write a contribution to the book as a third link. The sentence At the end of the world I exist was used as a point of departure point for a short story titled Legacies of the moon.
