The overlooking tree has formed at its base a thick carpet of leaves and branches , yellowish-brownish. The space is littered with cardboard boxes and plastic objects. To access, you must jump on the window sill and down a staircase of black metal which is not set. From the top, I overhang the school entrance, I observe the movement of students and cars. One must raise the head to see me. I am both visible and exposed, hidden and protected. Under my feet, the carpet of leaves crack. I sink little in there.
From the centre of the rectangle, my foot open a circular space. The ground is grey. All around gathered ele- ments in a spiral. The ground is little moist. Each day, I return to ensure its cleanliness.
