The Impossible Drawing or the Limits of Communication in Jorge Pinheiro

The “Mapas” series of the Portuguese artist Jorge Pinheiro provides the starting point of this article that discusses the information representation visual systems as variations on a single human technology: drawing, con- sidered as a matrix of all representation and information encoding in communication. It is verifiable in the form-content relation that as strongly the representational system en- codes, as strongly it represents itself.
