In this (de)Tour, renowned cartographer Philippe Rekacewicz will speak about the impact of climate change and environmental migration using maps as the main tool for analysing ocean, environment, and urban phenomena. He will also share his research process and recent projects in experimental cartography. A map can be both a representation of factual data as well as a political object that is in continuous dialogue with real and projected conditions. As a carefully designed visual image, it is at the intersection of cartography, art, and politics.
Rekacewicz is in Singapore under the auspices of University of Helsinki Department of Anthropology, visionscarto.net, and Singapore-ETH Centre Future Cities Lab.
