1. Splendid cradle | 2004

I found this map of South America in História dos índios no Brasil, edited by Manuela Carneiro da Cunha. It serves to geographically locate the [Brazilian] indigenous ethnic groups discussed in the book’s various texts. I was immediately touched by the image of a continent that––devoid of the political boundaries we know today––is beautifully presented through the very design of its rivers.
