In the continuity of Tephras and Gradiva, Unphras is a collage on glass that reconfigures images of rocks. The title Unphras is a word invented from Tephra, “comp. From Gr. τ ε φ ρ to “ash” or τ ε φ ρ ο ς “Grey ash”, in Geology ” “All solid and liquid materials from magma and rocks of the volcanic chimney, driven by gases and ejected with them during volcanic eruptions” (Ford.-Raoult Geol. 1980). (Source: CNRTL)/.
It would evoke “a phrase” or “a non-sentence”, in reference to the spectrogram aspect of collage.
