PM 008

This Primer Manufacture (PM) belongs to a collection set up by the Institute of Cartopology. The collection is an assembled compilation consisting of heterogeneous material related to cartopology in a particular way. Each PM is self-contained and simultaneously belongs to and supports the Forms of Expression.
The collection of PM’s is numbered and structured by sort, type and origin to retrieve a specific PM easier. To recognize a PM, there are two questions to answer: How does it relate to the cartopological context? and, what is the context the PM is taken from?

RELATION TO CARTOPOLOGY:

The paper elaborates the importance of the anthropologist doing fieldwork. Being part of your research is an important feature of cartopology.  

‘Descriptions have to solve the problems of the voiceless, the silent, the unspeakable, the prelinguistics, and the indescribable. Ethnography puts something into words, which did not exist in language before.’
