Keeping in mind that nothing remains stable, and that only change is constant; above all taking as a main axis the concept of movement, a phenomenon that defines the changes of position in the elements of a system and making reference to the famous illustration shown by Camille Flammarion in L’Atmosphere: Météorologie Populaire (Paris, 1888), is what the exhibition Invisible maps, presents.
You could say that in the history of movement there is an on-stage appearance when the creation of the universe with the theory of the big bang is explained. Invisible maps is a kind of cosmology which includes images on this phenomenon, (movement) from a macro space to micro cosmos, from external to internal, from public to personal; that is, taking the concept from a literal sense to an allegoric one, letting us see how cyclic the questions that man has been making through time, really are.
The show itself is a journey where each piece is a scene that speaks about search and discovery, of the journey there is from the rise of a question until arriving at the possible answer. This is a list of interpretations and knowledge about the Earth, nature and the very existence of man, it touches from homemade beliefs such as magic and in-deterministic processes as chance until sciences such as physics, astronomy, mathematics, geology, optics; in short is a list of moments that suggest order in what we before only named as chaos.
