Ji Zhou, a multimedia artist based in Beijing found a unique way of creating mountain ranges, skyscrapers, coastlines and islands by using recycled books and maps. He defines this concept of imaginary worlds where civilization and nature play the “landscapes of possibility”. During 2016 the artist’s series of photographs “Civilized Landscape” where showcased in New York city at the Klein Sun Gallery. The gallery says that his work ask the question: “What is civilization—a constructed illusion created by man or an inevitable product of evolution? What is the truly ‘civilized landscape’?”

Ji Zhou creates 3D scenes by hand, once completed he photographs them and edits them digitally to bring them to “life”.
