This edition includes a series of low-fidelity images of
post-industrial geological strata. Starting from small scale volumes
and open structures made of clear acetate and tape – hybrids
between fragmented architectural models and geometric sculptures
– layered with concrete, soil, ink, spray, among other materials,
these semi-transparent constructions are temporary structures until
eventually becoming de-assembled into flat sheets, each
crystalizing a lo-fi visual sediment of irregular textures
and fragmented geometries, reproduced here on paper. A thin
fragment of acetate draws a horizon line on some plates defining
two fields. The horizon line overlaps with the fold of the book spine.
