One day I began to notice the usual occurrence of abandoned suitcases around Barcelona. Perhaps it is because Barcelona is a tourist destination or just the revolving door of a city, or perhaps suitcases are another one of those intimate items that people don´t know how to dispose of… too many stories carried around inside. I began to use them as ways to throw out things from my workshop. I filled up suitcase after suitcase with the original goal of 92, inspired by Peter Greenaway´s film The Tulse Luper Suitcases, a personal history of Uranium, but continued on to 99 after finding a book in the street by Einstein.
The atomic number of Einsteinium is 99.
