Landscape with Bird Trap

Landscape with Bird Trap, produced as a book for Show 2016, is a combination of essay and fiction that follows the work of a prominent designer over the course of a year – a task that ultimately comes to focus on the sifting of fantasy and speculation from our lived experiences.
