    A great primer for the amorphous evolving and interdisciplinary space where the practice of art intersects with the study of geography I particularly got a lot out of the opening essays by Thompson and Paglen which I feel are rather essential to understand the rest of the work especially since you are denied the context of their intended presentation It's hard to adjudge an art book about a past exhibition highlighting a wide breadth of work when I may find some of the individual projects therein to be less compelling than others Which I do But the concept and execution of this book are unimpeachable

    This is a primarily artistic pretty loose and fascinating approach to geography Most of the work in the book presented like an exhibition catalog to a gallery show is conceptual and uite intellectual revolving around humanity's relationship to space and how we are defined and how we actively can redefine our habitatsThe book was full of inspiring concepts of how to reconfigure our perceptions of locations One group presented makes awesome diagrams of the production of an iPod accompanied by the labor history of each stop along the production chain Another group in LA develops alternative brochures which discuss the environmental impacts of various developments And another group gives bus tours to mining sites and shows in order to put people in touch with the production of pieces in our everyday lives
