For a short period, the artist Julio Pastor was allowed to occupy apartment 603 in a building in Delft before it was pulled down. During his time there, he set out to collect any traces he could find of the people who had lived in the apartment before by means of watercolour painting, polaroid and digital photographs. At the end of his stay Julio Pastor left behind all of the work he had produced in the apartment. This publication is the only surviving record of Julio Pastor’s investigation. In the process of creating it, the novelist Pierre Leroux re-signified apartment 603’s human traces by turning evidence into fiction. After Leroux, through the design of the publication, a new perspective on the project was discovered. The booklet brings to life reflections on shared notions of translation in the design process by putting the images of the artist back on the wall and rephotographing them.
