Erieta Attali's Poetic Archaeology of Light Shows Architecture in Extreme Terrains

Erieta Attali has devoted two decades to exploring the relationship between architecture and the landscape at the edges of the world.

Her unrelenting and highly physical expedition has seen her traverse four continents, working in isolated and remote terrains from Iceland to the Indian Ocean.
