On July 1, 1999, five trucks departed from Madrid for Castellón, each carrying a letter made of reinforced concrete. Each truck was of the same size and manufacture; The letters were not, although each weighen 22 tons. During the journey the truck drivers were asked to travel in a specified order, spelling out the word MUSEU (the official name of the Fine Arts Museum of Castellón, wich has become the logotype of this institution).
We were driving behind the trucksthe hole journey and our friend, the photographer Luis Asín, took this picture. We love it because it's a kind of "musealización" of the landscape.
