Invented landscape



1 volume (unpaged) in case : illustrations ; 24 x 13 x 5 cm Artist's statement: "The initial idea for this book came out of my participation in The Fourth International Biennale for the Artists' Book hosted by The Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Alexandria, Egypt in the spring of 2010. The assigned theme of nomadism led me to do much research and reflecting on the steady decline of the grasslands of Central Asia and Mongolia, and the disappearance of nomadic pastoralism in those parts of the world. In 2010, Mongolia experienced one of the harshest winters in a decade causing catastrophic losses of herds that may force many nomadic families to abandon their traditional way of life."
