The publication Light Works surveys the breath-taking ephemeral light projections staged by the artists Lucy + Jorge Orta in the most emblematic natural and man-made heritage sites across 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 the artists' 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.

Lo daba por perdido, lo pedí el 21 de febrero y llegó hoy!! No tenía numero de seguimiento y por lo mismo es más fácil que se retrase. Afortunadamente llegó y es muy bonito!!!

This Antarctica World Passport is so beautiful and it conveys a powerful message. I am ready to be a citizen of the world. I vow to protect Mother Earth, Father Sky, people, and animals and I will fight for global justice.
