Ever since the late 1970s, the word “merda” consistently appears painted on the walls of the buildings of Estrada de Benfica, the longest street in Lisbon. This graffiti, which scores the street every 20 metres, became the subject of a photo book where the word appears centred in all pages. Flipping the book generates an animation where the word appears suspended and stable, while the background flows in a frantic succession of formless images. The flipping of the book was recorded on tape, reinforcing the cinematic effect. The sound produced by the action was mixed with a mythical low frequency — the brown note — a powerful sub-base frequency which is said to stimulate bowel movement.
