This beautifully illustrated publication describes in detail the collaborative project ‘Clouds’ conducted by the artists Lucy + Jorge Orta, with students from the School of Architecture in Versailles (énsa-v), in 2011. It was published to coincide with an exhibition of the resulting sculptures at La Maréchalerie contemporary art centre as well as the sculpture warehouse of the Louvre and Château de Versailles, in France.

Researching creative ways to re-use waste, the artists and students demonstrate that plastic water bottles have the potential to become sculpture, architecture, furniture and even clothing. We gain insight into the artists’ ecological motivations through an interview conducted by the chief curator of La Maréchalerie. And the essays by art historians, architects and philosophers draw parallels to the paradox of plastic waste; a vital commodity for communities like the Zabaleen in Cairo, Egypt who rely on recycling for their livelihoods, at the same time a dangerous pollutant that is accumulating in our oceans at a vast rate and destroying marine life.

We highly recommend this publication for people interested in innovate approaches to recycling plastic.

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.

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.

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!!!

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).
