Abjure

David_Bart_21

The Earth is in its primordial state, made of glaciers and volcanoes. Untouched, rough, wild, landscapes are an invitation to humility.
Geocentric and anthropocentric visions have long coexisted. Galileo was facing an impossible task: to prove that the visible (the apparent rotation of the sun around the Earth) was a mistake, contrary to the predominant religious belief. The paradigm shift was too strong, even dizzying. In 1633, threatened with torture, he abjured.
This photographic serie questions man’s parochial vision and short-term approach vis-à-vis his environment, hence his destiny.
In recontextualizing The Popular Astronomy illustrations in real, contemporary environments and time frames, he reveals a singular metamorphosis: that of landscape turning into sign.
