Adriana Bustos Imago Mundi IV. Independent thinkers III, 2014 Acrylic, graphite and silver on canvas 210 x 200 cm 82.6 x 78.7 inches 'Imago Mundi' is the title of a set of 12 treaties on Cosmography, written in 1410 by the French theologian Pierre d'Ailly. These books, which guided Columbus in his first trips, proposed a possible formal reading of the world from intuition and calculation of the stars. Imago is a latin word meaning image or representation. Therefore, the title of the book is "Image of the World". Interpretation and representation of the world in a moment of history. In 2012 I started this project that consists of transferring data about various topics to the formal representation featured in maps, but always associated with modes and ideologies, that throughout the history of thought have attempted to represent the world. Imago Mundi is a device that attempts to create a fictional cartography based on experience, the information found in files, data from different sources, built and found images. It is a representation tool that allows me to sort information in a unique way to propose new associations between one event and another. Text by Adriana Bustos
