Ibrahim Miranda's cartographic finds (or map glyphs as he calls them) “are a sort of urban bestiary: many animals highlight a space within a great city and that tiny part of the city transformed into moose, horses, elephants, pigs or sea horses turns out to be utopia…urban utopia is knowing that from the lines I apparently draw at random unnoticed animals emerge and walk the continents.” As physical maps become colorful isles, the artist reinforces his own birth place in which “spatial and politic limits distinguish [his] insularity.”
