Sometimes they’ll return

The piece is inquiring the human imaginary, by investigating the connection between daily environment toward the cultural one.

A 3D elevation model of Iceland, seeing from the sea is showing what we can possibly see from our position or point of view as a metaphor beside our attitudes. The old map from Abraham Ortelius, standing inside the Natural Museum has been used us a referential for the piece, in order to give the imaginary a location to be conceived.

Teenagers were asked to choose with a random system, a letter or a silhouette, created by utilizing the explanation form Abraham Ortelius about the mystical creatures depicted in 1540 from the surrounding environment of Iceland, and then teenagers were photographed with the chosen item symbolizing the mystical connection.
