imaginary map of boston


From the series “Code”, oil and graphite pencil on paper, 30 x 30 cm.

A map is an imprint, a sign of man in the landscape. An alien intelligence, observing our cities from the great distances of the space, could interpret them as the characters of an alphabet, sort of messages, a code of signs, each one different from the other, each with its own meaning and its own syntax. This hypothetical alien presence may not even realize that these cities have a purpose and a function, which are the product of the way we have adapted to live on this planet, but it could engage in an attempt to interpret this unknown language, identifying the alphabet and associating to each character a precise meaning. We will still be able to understand and share this new meanings, or will they have lost any sense for us?

The style of this piece seems quite decorative with its provocative contents, but it sets the subtle mood of the setting.

I love the color choices and the acute attention to detail. Convoluted yet simple, I love it.
