The terrestrographic machine was thought as a way to emancipate from standardized tools and dominant uses, by designing a machine that will react to the place it is installed in. The terrestrographic machine makes images from inks made from collected matter in specific sites. This work suggests the reappropriation of our daily tools while developing a new sensibility to the materiality of the world that surrounds us.
