Cognitive maps – mental maps, guides, or models – are a method that we use to construct and store spatial information, allowing the “mind’s eye” to visualize, code, and store information in order to recall, decode, and use it when needed at a later date.

Artist Zbyněk Baladrán has often been described as an archaeologist of knowledge and memory, and he continues to use maps and diagrams in his work as a representational means of visualizing concepts, ideas, and interrelationships in a clear and structured manner. In the video installation “Assemblages Against Essences” (HD video projection on 10 stacks of white paper), ten constantly changing images are projected onto a surface of ten stacks of blank white paper that represent a dynamic map as well as a projected model.
