Bethany Wood:
All the World in a Book

While working in the field with the Land Arts Program of the American West, Bethany Wood collected images and impressions of major land features, such as Spiral Jetty and the Bingham Copper Pit. But she also kept note of the nomadic encampment deployed by the class, and from that created a unique metal-and-paper pop-up “book.” Her works take some of the largest land interventions in the West and transforms them into small intricate sculptures you can hold in your hand.
