INFO:

 



The series of 7 diptychs describes, in a broken narrative, a strange geographical phenomenon that has taken place through the last years. The title points towards a period in time undergoing an unstable situation of severe hazard and struggle. The text, written as field annotations, portrays a chain of events that could result in a disaster of great proportions.

The series of collages is made from pages of a found book titled The Emerging City, and images from past geographical surveys. Each page has been silkscreened to block certain portions of the original text in order to construct a new one that narrates observations of a natural crisis. The ambiguous character of both the text and the images leaves space for open interpretation.
