The Observatory. The book is the result of a research on hysteria. The publication is comprised of two parts, the first of which collects a set of terms associated with hysteria, by way of a glossary, that emerged from conversations between the artist, and psychologist Imanol Amayra, Director of the Department of Personality,  at the University of Deusto.  The second part shows the photographic result of the archive. This book has been selected as one of the 20 Best Non Fiction Book in 2013 byNotodo. And its designer, Borja Iribarnegaray with this work, has been selected one of the 15 best graphic designers of the Basque Country in 2013.
