ANDREW ROGERS: RHYTHMS OF LIFE -- A GLOBAL LAND ART PROJECT. Silvia Langen. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2016. 232 pp. with 134 col. ills. 31 x 25 cm. LC 2016-938557 ISBN 9783791355405 In English.
Publisher's description: For the past 16 years Andrew Rogers has been building enormous stone structures called geoglyphs on all seven continents around the world. Designed to be seen from above, these magnificent creations have a global purpose -- to form a set of connected drawings on Earth visible from space, embracing the cultural heritage of all civilizations. This book includes stunning ground-level, aerial, and satellite photography. From the peaks of Nepal to the Bolivian Andes; the granite monoliths of Sri Lanka to the volcanic expanses of Iceland; the frigid ice caps of Antarctica to the sweltering desert sands of the African Savannah -- each of the 51 geoglyphs was built using local materials and conceived of with the help of local workers, archaeologists, and ethnologists. Brimming with fascinating stories and photos that illustrate the unlimited potential of community cooperation, this book introduces readers to a unifying land art project whose scope and humanity are unparalleled in modern art history.
