« On n’existe que de faire exister. Quelque part. Contre la mise au pas de nos parcours, contre les abstractions qui permettent d’en mesurer la valeur, il y a la croyance en d’autres mondes où ont lieu des rencontres incalculables entre les êtres. Croire, ici, n’est rien d’autre que vivre la possibilité d’une existence autre, prendre parti pour les expérimentations qui la rendent possible. […] »

A series of talismans as key rings from the pebbles on the Sainte-Odile site with Odylus residents, who are temporarily occupying places. Doubles are then shaped and decorated with an engraving of the Kenaz rune. This rune shaped in a corner of a roof symbolises the domesticated fire, the torch, the flame, in connection with the hearth or the household: in the past, the population was counted in number of « fire » or luminous « hearths », therefore readable at night.
