  • Synopsis: “(…) The shape of Controlo de qualidade captures our attention and leads to rethinking some of the more simple gestures and practices of any reader. This volume (cover that closes a set of sheets bound by elastic bands) makes us reflect upon the act of reading not only as an intelectual ability but also as a physical activity centered in our body. Sacrificing the most pragmatic option of a fixed/glued page, Controlo de qualidade turns radical the idea of a book itself, any book. It brings absolute freedom to the experience of the volume: reading it ran-domly, leaving pages aside (in this case on the table, on the floor…), mixing them on pur-pose or by mistake.” Text by Elisabete Marques The quality of something is always double, at least. And the quality of a day is of consecu-tiveness, many times repeating. My days, between 2014 and 2015, brought me a double will: a will of saying: a will of silence. Days of being alone and keep my tasks predictable. Days of losing place and starting to love planes: the sound of engines: the name. Consecutive days as the days of all of us who start (everyday) activities: tasks: reading books: meeting people: speeches. And what if a speech, a text, could propose a truth and a form that are similar to our days? That was the question I did before writing: the same question and attempt in every page of Controlo de qualidade. Each page could only be double: dialogue. Text by Ricardo Tiago Moura.
