64 Sacred Views
In the book images are replaced with 64 words or sentences. The minimal, non-linear storyline hovers from general descriptions of a landscape and nature into more abstract views on human mind, memory and communication. Many sacred sites are loaded with mythohistorical narratives that make them appear as scenes and stages for history. Therefore, apart from being religious and historical touchstones, they are also powerful sociopolitical statements. When all the narratives of certain places are erased, the images and the story are left to be conjured by the reader and the world is to be constructed from within.
