Terram in Aspectu (Book)

Inkjet prints, Magnesium plates, 8.5 x 8,5'', 2022

In an accordion book, Terram in Aspectu presents a series of satellite photography (generated by a machine learning algorithm trained on Google Earth) of non-existent islands that appeared in historical maps. The images are accompanied by a collection of fragments from nautical log books and travelogs that report either the colonially perceived discovery of the islands, or those proving such islands to be non-existent.
