new world map

Contiguous land Accept the challenge and employ a new world map that includes 100% of life on earth. The anthropocentric Dymaxion map, our grand inspiration, can not do that as it splits the oceans, which cover 70% of earth. An estimated 50-80% of all life on earth is found under the ocean surface and the […]

Quote Patti Smith fire

 
 
 

in girum imus nocte
et consumimur igni

 
 

A fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Swept her up and off my wavelength.
Swallowed her up like the ocean in a fire thick and gray.
Death comes sweeping thru the hallway like a ladies’ dress.
Death comes riding down the hallway in it’s sunday best.
Death comes driving; death comes creeping;
Death comes I can’t do nothing.
Death goes, there must be something that remains.
Death, it made me sick and crazy
‘Cause that fire took my baby away.

–Patti Smith – Fire Of Unknown Origin

 
 

we turn in the night
and are consumed by fire

ABOUT

“Sometimes, it felt like the inner workings of the universe made visible. It revolved slowly, then grew in complexity until it seemed, in substance if not style, like a collaboration between da Vinci, Picasso and Stephen Hawking.”
Evening Post, New Zealand

A NEW WORLD ATLAS

The Garden Of Delights – The Garden Without Humans
G.O.D. by Maite Cajaraville (2010) based on the

Garden Of Earthly Delights by Hieronymous Bosch (1500).
A world view inspired by the high biodiversity in Chenobyl, an unexpected haven for wildlife.

INVISIBLE EARTH

An ever evolving atlas
for the constantly changing world
and the continuously repeating cycle of
generation, operation, destruction
and regeneration…

  • Create an interactive atlas for the world using state-of-the-art technologies such as AR, VR and data-driven overlays. Introduce the invisible as the new visible. Establish an open platform for monitoring, experiencing and communicating environmental data as meaningful information.
  • Accept the challenge and employ a new world map that includes 100% of life on earth. The Dymaxion map, our grand inspiration, can not do that as it splits the oceans, which cover 70% of earth.
    • An estimated 50-80% of all life on earth is found under the ocean surface and the oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet. Less than 10% of that space has been explored by humans. 85% of the area and 90% of the volume constitute the dark, cold environment we call the deep sea. The average depth of the ocean is 3,795 m. The average height of the land is 840 m. [https://marinebio.org/creatures/facts/]
    • Scientists estimate that 91 percent of ocean species have yet to be classified.
  • Atlas, the Titan, received the task to hold up the celestial heavens for eternity. Invisible Earth shall therefore be a cosmology revealing the interconnectedness of living systems.
