'Carta d'Agua (Rain Map)'

Rain Maps (2008)by Rivane Neuenschwander is a series of fourteen equally sized maps that were exposed to the torrential downpours of Brazil’s rainy season. The weather system has left its mark on the surface of the paper, diluting inks, smudging boundaries and dissolving landmasses to create unique and uncharted terrain. The remains of the map are put back in place, before a deluge of painted colour sweeps in and floods the rivers and valleys on the damaged surface.

Hello!

I stumbled here looking for 'the solitude of ravens' (I don't know why we always have to say how we got here, but there you go!)

Oh yes, great blog.

Best wishes,
