A pipeline produces a heavy fog that spills onto an unfolded black fabric. This creates a kind of geographical model, with valleys and hills, which evokes a desert-like or an entropic landscape. Each activation creates the new map of a fantasy plot, which only exists until its own disappearance. Between land art and modelism, Map sets up the fictitious topography of a territory, where fog sets up a geological motif, ephemeral and evanescent.
