Shelley Sacks, Wolfgang Zumdick
ATLAS of the Poetic Continent
Pathways to Ecological Citizenship
‘The places of the poetic continent are not physical places. They map the internal regions and contours of the inner human being that lives in a cosmos of other beings and life forms. They constellate the places of the soul.’
This collection of poetic, philosophical and literary texts and full-colour images offers an ATLAS of the Poetic Continent – a treasure to study, contemplate and inspire action in the world.
This book grew out of a social sculpture process in a city that invited its citizens – individually and collectively – to enter into a process of active reflection on the question ‘what am I doing in the world?’ This project confirmed that the connection between inner and outer work, and the inner workspace, is central to all social sculpture processes.
