Vitriol is an backronym that stands for:
V : Visita
I : Interiora
T : Terrae
R : Rectificando
I : Invenies
O : Occultum
L : Lapidem
Which means : “Visit the interior of the earth and rectifying (i.e. purifying) you will find the hidden/secret stone” found in L’Azoth des Philosophes by the 15th Century Alchemist Basilius Valentinus.
The purpose of this blog is to test this formula.
I am an artist and compose images from old engravings.
I will try then to apply the ideas linked to Vitriol in compositions.
Images, maps, riddles, texts will all be used in order to attain this goal.
