“Terra Incognita” is a conceptual fanzine, that borrows Aldous Huxley’s concept from “Doors of Perception” (1954) and “Heaven and Hell” (1956). A visual exploration through paper and digital collage, analogue photography and calligraphy.

“Like the earth of a hundred years ago, our mind still has its darkest Africas, its unmapped Borneos and Amazonian basins. (…) A man consists of what I may call an Old World of personal consciousness and, beyond a dividing sea, a series of New Worlds - the not too distant Virginias and Carolinas of the personal subconscious and the vegetative soul; the Far West of the collective unconscious, with its flare and symbols, its tribes of aboriginal archetypes; and, across another, vaster ocean, at the antipodes of everyday consciousness, the world of Visionary Experience.”


— HUXLEY, Aldous, "Doors of Perception" (1954),  "Heaven and Hell" (1956).






“When you paint or carve drapery, you are painting or carving forms which, for all practical purposes, are non-representational – the kind of unconditioned forms on which artists even in the most naturalistic tradition like to let themselves go.”
