LUFTMEER MEANS LITERALLY AEREAL OCEAN
IT IS THE WORD THAT THE GEOGRAPHER, ASTRONOMER, EXPLORER AND NATURALIST ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT INVENTED TO REFER TO THE LAYER OF AIR THAT SURROUNDS EARTH BEFORE THE CONCEPT “ATMOSPHERE” EXISTED. LUFTMEER IS AN EDITORIAL PROJECT BASED IN BARCELONA. WE ENJOY PRODUCING AN EDITING OUR OWN INVESTIGATIONS AND WE SEARCH INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECTS LIKELY TO SHAPE A CONSTELLATION OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURAL REFERENCES.
We are amazed by all kind of visual scientific tools and representations. We edit old and contemporary materials on the intersection of science and art works that use its languages for his own. Graphics, diagrams, sketches, maps, cartographies….We wonder about the relation between those, ’reality’ and ‘knowledge’.
