The idea of mapping the trade routes from the sixteenth century onto the migrant practices of 21st century exchanges is an excercise in memory and history. How contemporary spaces reinvent older journeys is one objective of this rehearsal of older routes. Retracing an older trading logic through modern technological means produces a new relationship to a now defunct history.
The senses mark layers of information through the historical past and the migratory present. Nomadic relationships to placeness emerge.
