Zuidas is a glossy, dense, modern business district- Surtsey an uninhabited volcanic environment accessible only for research. This beautifully conceived book documents a temporary art project dreamed up by the artist team of Elodie Hiryczuk and Sjoerd van Oevelen, installing billboard-size panoramic photos of Surtsey on the streets of Zuidas. The books full-color photos illustrate the projects brilliant mash-up of art, geography, history, geology, urban planning and architecture. With wide-ranging texts, including a reprint of Gilles Deleuzes 1953 Lile deserte. The website for this project won a Red Dot Award for design (www.landfall-project.info).
