Mountainous Landscapes and City Skyscrapers Constructed from Maps and Books

Chinese artist Ji Zhou creates illusory landscapes using maps and book in carefully placed installations before photograping the compositions. For his new show at Klein Sun Gallery and first U.S. solo show titled "Civilized Landscape", Zhou collected maps and hand-sculpted them into peaks and troughs to mimic mountainous landscapes. He also included books that are assembled into cantilevered towers resembling city skyscrapers. Ji Zhou tells The Creators Project. "My concerns lie in why more and more cities are becoming visually identical and boring in their cityscapes,"
