These toponyms (names) exist throughout the world, they show the landscape and describe the context of a field. Retaining only those evocative names, Terra Incognita offers a refined mapping, cleansed of its informative layers. At a moment populated by Google Earth and omniscient views, the map in this work has no scale or legend, only the lines and contours of the coastal lakes appear on white background. It is presented as a touch screen in a device designed as a workspace, allowing for an intimate consultation. The navigation is done by meaning association, offering a sensitive and poetic movement, from a symbolic name to another.
