Cosmographia takes its title from a 16th century encyclopaedic record of the known and imagined worlds by the cartographer Sebastian Munster. It is a journey through a maze of repeated and abstracted patterns and shapes exploring ideas of eternal recurrence and the hermetic/esoteric principle ‘as above, so below’. The film uses motifs which occur throughout Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’. It has a hand built and drawn aesthetic. Influences come from the likes of Buckminster Fuller and the films of Kenneth Anger.
