Disapearing Museums

Disappearing Museums brings together landscape photography and architectural sketches of unrealized museums in an atypical format. Its twelve blueprints, overlaid onto images of the remote Icelandic desert, are conceived to be built as life-size drafts using salt core, a biodegradable material that naturally dissolves when exposed to rain. With its contemporary approach to authorship – each photograph is sourced from the Creative Commons –and its blurring of boundaries between art, photography and architecture, Disappearing Museums reimagines what an art book can be.
