The unfoldings of the new mapping and locating systems are undeniable.
The popularization of the GPSs devices and the accessibility of on line maps are indicative of a new perception of space.
Nevertheless, all those issues also point to new geopolitics dynamics and to a repetitive aesthetic redundancy which seems to pursuit the utopia of a map in a 1:1 scale like a sad Borgean character pictured in “On Exactitude in Science”.
Second Landscapes is a series of imaginary locations produced through the combination of diferent spaces, all shot with cell phone cameras in travelling situations and aims to discuss the Locative Media phenomena beyond the hype.

First Exhibited at Chain Reaction – Upgrade Macedonia. Curator: Martha Gabriel (2008)
