Based on the homonym book by the british author David Wardlaw Scott, 'Terra Firma' explores archaic theories about the shape of our planet, supported by similar aspects across diverse cultures and civilizations throughout the history of mankind. From gestures, actions and elaboration of aparatus I try to deceive the spectator in the attempt to reveal a truth invented among many others.
