My dear friend,
I keep on wandering. No matter how much terrain passes beneath my feet. This country, its size and the limits of its boundaries remain uncertain. I hope to see you soon again.
With love, G.M.

A picture postcard, showing AI-generated landscapes is pinned on a corkboard, a quasi-pre-screen element. The prompt that generated these images is a description of Terra Australis on the 1538 world map by Gerhard Mercator. Terra Australis, eng. the southern land is a hypothetical continent first posited in antiquity and which appeared on maps between the 15th and 18th centuries. Mercator described it the following: "It is certain that there is a land here, but its size and the limits of its boundaries are uncertain“.
