MARE MAGNVM: VLTRAMARINI VIII
MARE MAGNVM: VLTRAMARINI
"Back home, I was an engineer. For months I drew schemes on the kitchen table every evening, figuring out how to turn the roof of our house into a boat to carry us away."
VLTRAMARINI, or “those beyond the sea,” now stands in as a moment in-between, continuing to expand the MARE MAGNVM world. The collection is made up of 15 unique images that show the passengers arriving at a coastline. Seen altogether, the works form a sprawling panorama of their landfall. This moment, fraught with danger but still teeming with triumph, is fractured, indicating the variety of perspectives tied into the same event. Each image provides a view of the Vltramarini as their ocean voyage ends and a new leg of their quest begins.
