PAISAJE VIRTUAL I, II
coloured sticks, steel cable
This work takes Paul Baran’s diagram of distributed networks (1964) as a map. Is it the potentiality between the „virtual“ and „Fact“ which make us think about those points fallen out of the system as not only a new but also a possible „other“ cartography of the „Real“? Tracing the scaled plot of the in internet-found diagram on flexible steel cable becomes a performative act. Following knot by knot the „original plot“, embodying it and giving it body, it acquires a reality of matter through bends and knots. Random coloured sticks in elevation speak about those points that could also inform the landscape, quoting the characteristic of a „potential“ cartography, cartography and map of interconnected worlds.
