Artists Lucy + Jorge Orta have worked collaboratively since founding Studio Orta in 1992, and this has been the ethos of their practice ever since. Pattern Book, published in 2009 looks back over a series of projects that have engaged communities in a process of thinking, exploring, and making together.

Through concrete examples, readers interested in co-creation, social practice and community engagement will gain a deeper insight into the artists' multi-layered methods of engagement and the social, political and pedagogical impact of their work. An essay and interview by curators Sally Tallant and Janna Graham reflect on the principles of collaboration and pedagogy that characterise the work of Studio Orta.

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!!!

Quite a cool movement to take part in. The passport took about a month to arrive, however I ordered it during the holiday season so this was to be expected. It seems to be of a reasonable quality and I would say it is worth the purchase as it is something you can hold onto for a long time. In addition to its symbolic value, I have discovered that it can serve another purpose. You might have heard of those novelty passport stamps that that you can receive at places like Checkpoint Charlie, Machu Picchu, Easter Island, stations around Antarctica... even in Wales where that town with the really long name is. If you don't wish to risk invalidating your real passport with unofficial passport entries but still want to receive the cool stamps, then the two blank pages in the Antarctica Passport could be used for this purpose.
