A book to emerge in and start you own wonderings and fascination of the world. A book to emerge in and start you own wonderings and fascination of the world.
“Time passes, millions of years at the turn of a page. Crawling, creeping, flying creatures move across the images that fill the pages, telling stories not only of evolution, but of knowledge, travel, and how we as viewers are shaped and re-shaped by a continuous flow of information.
Cecilia Westerberg’s bookwork originates from a stay in Rome where she studied a collection of maps and old instruments for land surveying, map-making and navigation. These tools for creating and organising knowledge about geology, geography and travel are some of the foundations for globalisation and the subsequent informational revolution. They are recurring in the book, as signs of information being amassed over time, but also of how this process contributes to our increasing sense of disorientation in an overwhelming ocean of data.”
