During a trip in California with a Mexican friend I was telling, just as you do with a psychologist, what happened to me subconsciously when I looked to repetitive elements.
It started form my intimacy, an incessant process to be wanting to count the serial things, for instance the stripes of a roller shutter, the sequence of poles on a street, a serie of tanks through the road and so on.
I immediately realized that I had to visualize this brain mechanism and so I began taking photos what stimulated my process.
Only after, when printed, thanks to stencils and spray I apples of the photography self the same numeric sequence that came to my mind when I shot the picture.
This is how 123456 came to life, a little neurosis that surely happens to everyone!
