Horizonte de sucesos II is an etched drawing on wood. It takes part of a series in which I redraw maps of volcanoes in border regions taken from open-access platforms of digital maps. I transfer the contouring lines that tell of the level of the relief from the virtual to the material world, transforming them into something corporeal, traces on the surface, adding more lines until arriving to density zones that show hidden structures and forms in the original map and that seem to remind us of the bowels of the volcano itself. The work title refers to an astronomy term for the last border that exists on the external edge of a black hole. I am interested in the possible bonds between the sky and earth, in how both spaces are apprehended, dimensioned, territorialized, conceptualized, and dreamed.
