The process of drawing – or tracing – lines is to territory what writing is to language. In the territory, the tracing of a line stands as a critical decision about the analysis or construction of a site.  Informal maps have been since prehistory a way not only of recognizing the structure of a territory but also a way of transmission – the passing of tradition from one generation to another. Cultures are defined by the transmission of language – the different symbols that enable tradition with its own cultural value. Language evolves. Words are adapted to modern speaking. Symbols that are no longer needed, because their signification has lost all meaning in the modern world, are suppressed and left behind as traces of different paths of human history. Memory and history – the latter seen as our own personal interpretation of the former – are unconscious processes written in parallel as we, individuals, advance in life. /
