Acerca de


Description: GeoCat sets out to follow the tradition of charting or map-making as the capturing of visual records of a territory--in this case, Catalonia--where the force of the urban seems to presage imminent transformation in its environment. Catalonia is a heterogeneous and plural territory, rich and diverse. The visualization of the multiple facets and fragments that make up this territory offered by GeoCat evidences the richness of this diversity, but also manifests the need for the effective management of its disequilibriums and the permanent transformation it is subjected to by human activity. These photographs by Laura Cantarella lend themselves to a curious ambiguity: presented in a super-panoramic format (represented here by more than 40 4-page color gatefolds), they deploy themselves before us like a vast register of extended horizons, diverse, changing, varied. However, when we hold the edges of the picture in our fingers and bend it until they meet, we discover an unexpected 360-degree diorama that reveals the true format of the image: that of a circular view as the translation of a polyfocal, multiple gaze attentive to the recognition of an nth-dimensional reality. In effect, Cantarella's photographs bend space and time in a single image.
