The Triaparator and The Dihemispheric Chronaether Agitator at the Sonoma County Museum

Tonight I went to the opening of “Envisioning the World: The First Printed Maps 1472-1700,” at the Sonoma County Museum, which featured The Triaparator and The Dihemispheric Chronaether Agitator.

The show was really great.  The maps are really stunning in their history and beauty.  It was a real honor to have my work shown beside such amazing objects.   On of the maps on display was the oldest know map of the world, a T and O style map by Guntherus Ziner, Augsburg, 1472.  You can see a photo of it in the sideshow below.  It was really amazing to have two of my sculptures displayed beside such historic jem.

The show runs until Jan 17, 2010, and if you’re into cartography (or my work) it’s worth a visit.

Also below is a little video of my fried Barbara operating The Triaparator.

They incorporate The Triaparator into a little information section on the role of astrology in cartography.
