The Construction

A series of Brazilian maps are cut out following the longitudinal and latitudinal lines. The action registered in the video is a reaction to a Cartesian system that influenced the world’s cartographic representation.

The soundtrack is mounted as a mosaic of sound footage, suggesting a collage structure. It simulates a realistic soundtrack of the cutting performance, but it is a constructed sound.

Together with the video, a photograph shows a fragment of a map of Brazil.
