(From the publisher) The minimalistic aesthetics of this book remind me of a sophisticated piece of electronic music. It’s not the rhythm or the melody that drives the piece forward, it´s the sound that fills the room while layers of the same but offset played patterns generate complexity.
There are rugged cliffs, dark barren landscapes, ground vegetation and different shaped monoliths, buildings with no obvious function and few interiors not meant to reside in. While the silver gray of the images is getting louder you are traveling on the moon like an isolated earthling looking for the right direction.
History of the Visit is a small book with a strong atmosphere.
