An exhibition of literary descriptions of imaginary places modelled out of discarded Lonely Planets, displayed in the evocative setting of Westminster Reference Library, London.

The imaginary places – chosen from personal readings and fascinations – have been analysed and represented using various approaches and techniques of alteration; claustrophobic vortexes, towering structures, and colourful creatures propagate from the covers of the travel guides, tempting the viewer to dive into their compact worlds.

A landscape of valleys and mountains, cliffs and caves made of recycled cardboard boxes was created to host and display the books.
