WORK:

 

INFO:






The works take as a departing point a found series of maps titled An Historical Atlas, where a timeline of different historical events brings to light a vision of a new world. The original maps depict the dissipating darkness of a cloudy panorama, which follows key historical events through time, expanding the geographical view through the gaining of knowledge of new territories.

In the new series Geologic Lights, the cartographic content is replaced by images of geological phenomena. Progressively, the obscuring clouds start moving apart, unveiling a scenario in continuous transformation that exposes the shifting energy of the world and the uncertainty of its future.
