The publication Light Works surveys a series of breathtaking ephemeral light projections staged by the artists Lucy + Jorge Orta across the most emblematic natural and man-made features in the world. From the Inca temples in Macchu Pichu, to the troglodyte caves of Cappadoccia, inside the fuming crater of Mount Aso the world's largest active volcano in Japan, to the splendid Chartres Cathedral and the palaces of Reims and Venice; landscapes and monuments become the grandiose stage onto which symbols and pictograms of their imaginary planetary alphabet are projected.

Light Works reflects the global breadth of Lucy + Jorge Orta’s art, which takes art out of the gallery and museums to bridge nature, culture and technology and present a universal message. Essays by art historians and curators, James Putnam and Gabriella Salgado examine the development of Lucy + Jorge Orta’s practice and explore the social and ecological concerns that have provided both the impetus and the expressive force of Light Works. Extensive biographies and bibliographies make this an invaluable resource.

I filled up my other one so I had to get a second one for my trip next year. These are fantastic passports and it's fun to collect stamps and memorabilia in.
