A MODERN ATLANTIS (L'ATLANTIDE CONTEMPORAINE)

neg An artist's book and a personal manifesto written as a allegory, based on Plato's description of the legendaryAtlantis. It is an expression of my philosophy and beliefs in my work as an architect, artist, teacher and writer over a period of over 40 years. It is in the form of a dialogue of the Greek gods of Olympus, as I imagined Plato might have written it, looking down upon our contemporary world to complete his unfinished dialogue CRITIAS. This was presented at an exhibition of prints on the theme of Atlantis in a gallery/bookshop in Brantome en Perigord, France, in November 2018. On this site is the artist's book in English and with a french translation of the Preface, in the form of files in PDF format to download and print out or read on line.
