This beautifully illustrated hardback publication covers three major bodies of work by artists Lucy + Jorge Orta: Food - Water - Life. Through these universal topics, the reader will get a better picture of how Lucy + Jorge create their artworks and their role as creative 'agents' for social awareness and change.

Since founding Studio Orta in 1992, the duo have created an extensive body of work that addresses universal concerns of community, shelter, migration, and sustainable development. Beyond merely tackling these issues artistically, their work suggests solutions by modeling fresh approaches to social dilemmas. From reclaiming discarded food for town-wide dinner celebrations to staging an international exhibition in Antarctica, their often-playful projects incorporate elements of design, fashion, art, and architecture, which they combine with performances, multimedia events, and public debates.

Featuring hundreds of photographs of their artworks, Food Water Life includes texts by highly regarded art historians and curators: Zoë Ryan, Ellen Lupton, Judith Hoos Fox, Ginger Gregg Duggan and an interview with Hou Hanru provides a deeper insight into the artists’ processes and motivations.

This is a great item! The cover is very high quality material. If you carry it around be advised some of the ink might start to fade. The pages inside are a nice heavy stock of paper. There are not specific pages designated for visas- but there are some 2 page spreads that could easily be used if you want to collect more stamps on your own. There are also several pages that talk about the mission of this project. One nice detail was the first page had the edition number out of how many printed hand written on- and the stamps that have been seen at the events are placed on that page as well (it looks to be physically stamped- not printed on).

Ok product and not as high quality as the reviews state. My item arrived bent at the corners and the printing on the cover is slanted (not aligned properly) so “world passport” looks crooked. While I admire the concept, the execution is lacking sadly.

I gave it up, I asked for it on February 21st and it arrived today!! It had no tracking number and therefore it is easier to delay.
Fortunately it arrived and it's very nice!!!
