Service Description

This course will introduce the rare discipline of Esoteric Cartography through the visual work of David Chaim Smith. The discipline refers to the mapping of metaphysical realms and territories through graphic and linguistic means. The work is the result of a life of formal mystical practice, which allows imagery to be generated by bypassing psychological patterns of association. This phenomenon will be examined with the aid of seminal kabbalistic and alchemical ideas that will help draw a distinction between this unusual endeavor and visual work derived from the imagination or the personal/collective unconscious, such as surrealism or fantasy/psychedelic illustration. Eighty cartographic images from the years 2006–2022 will be shown and commented upon. All sessions will be recorded, and participants will have access to a video of each recorded class. A PDF of the complete set of images will be supplied upon registration. Session 1: Introduction & Biographical Material Session 2: Principles of Esoteric Cartography Part 1 Session 3: Principles of Esoteric Cartography Part 2 Session 4: Discussion of Cartographic Images
