Andrew Zolli presents an excellent post over at Z+Blog about the intricate inter-relationship maps (or “conspiracy art“) of the late Mark Lombardi. The Brooklyn-based Lombardi is the subject of a retrospective called Global Networks at The Drawing Center in SoHo.

The diagrams (Lombardi called them “Narrative Structures”) are beautiful – and reveal the web of influence that ties together Popes and Presidents, terrorists and technocrats, and the remarkable ‘natural life’ of grand conspiracies. Simultaneously compelling and disturbing, the diagrams reaffirm the true social power of maps in particular, and information architecture in general.
