A  T O P O G R A P H I C  S T U D Y

From Greek khartes (paper) and graphein (write), Carthography builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information.

 

Topography is the study of the shape and features of the surface of the earth and other astronomical objects, including planets, moons and asteroids.

The starting point of the study is one of the papers used in shops to wrap delicate clothing. It is a very functional and cheap paper that at the same time looks very fragile. This type of paper is never re-used. It is mostly crush to a ball and thrown away.

 

I treat this paper ball as a world to be explored: in the same manner an astronomer looks at another galaxies and studies its structures and composition: going through its folds and untouched spaces to eventually picture this exploration on maps.

 

A self-reflection on the little (big) things that surround us; those banalities that we overlook in our day-to-day.

FROM TRASH TO TREASURE.

A PROJECT ON THE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES OF BROKEN PIECES.

 

The starting point of this study are broken plexiglass that i converted into colourful pieces and mixed to produce plexiglass paintings, installations, A/V material and projections. An infinite chain of compositions out of broken pieces.
