This sandy book will literally crumble in your hands. CITY is a para-photographic experiment of appropriation and variation, presenting an alternative reading of Michael Heizer’s homonymous project, expected to be finished in 2020. Champassak creates a sort of digital excavation using the tool of Google Earth and “unearths” from the satellite imagery 41 mysterious shapes, far echoes of the Nazca lines. In this precious volume, Heizer’s exquisite gigantism is reduced to a refined collection of archetypal forms. — From the editor
