Martin Tibabuzo

Terrestrial globes are often considered the only truly accurate maps as they do not misrepresent distances as ‘flat’ maps do. Martin Tibabuzo’s globe, however, runs contrary to this more scientific aim. After starting to lose his memory in the early 2000s, Tibabuzo was instructed by medical advisors to undertake certain memory exercises, timelines and ‘mind maps’ which he soon turned into artistic projects. Following this, Mi Mundo was created completely from memory. Whilst the results are not always as expected, it is the world as Tibabuzo sees it from his minds-eye, a globe of his lived existence.
