In “The Maps of Santa Barbara”, we uncover John Cascone’s first field of study. Cascone recalls at the age of eleven to twelve years old, he would explore nearby caves. Cascone was endeavouring to find a remote past, geological layers, fossils, potentially ancient objects. In the valley of the Piana di Santa Barbara, in Siciliy, Cascone would find and recognise different types of fossils — yet in the caves Cascone more often found papers, handkerchiefs, items from nights previous. Cascone envisioned such items as future fossils, and made images of the places that he explored — the maps — using handkerchief and paper sculpture, scanning them to create ‘rock’ images.
