— Innesti

Innesti (Grafts) follow the logic of the joint, of the link. There is no homogeneity, but rather the question is how to create an assemblage, how to compose a continuity. This is why the joint lets itself be seen, while letting itself be led by the lines of its surfaces. It follows the curve, it follows the plane, it follows the concaves and convexities. It is a weld which occurs in wood. Even if the shapes, nodules and knuckles, or cylinders, cones and spheres have different consistencies, the graft flattens out on the trunk: it is a tree, which is all one to the touch.

— Overlaps

When a movement is projected out of a joint or surface, one must reflect not only on the inside and the outside, but on the volume of the void and that of its fullness. That is, where the volumes intersect. Here the joint is the intersection of what is called male and what is called female. The volumes cross each other, the game of angles and lines hides the graft in the corner. So the gap left by the cut, the void, is only the passage of another form, the place to continue a formal growth. It is the first thought of the composition.

— Tralci

Tralci (Branches) think in terms of continuity. A cohesive assemblage, which still conceals the cuts between the corners and arranges the volumes by leading them on the perpendicularity of the lines. It is a regularity that accompanies the edges, and that composes on these the succession of homogeneous elements, developing the planes of the surfaces into lines and volumes: shoots. The assemblage of elements, here, does nothing but think of unity, than reiterating the affinities between cuts, shapes, corners and edges. A synthesis, which is needed in the individual in the sympathy between planes and volumes.
