Two maps of a land artwork located at coordinates 26.769861, 47.448222 in the Arabian Desert,
cast in 23.75 carat Rosenobel gold leaf. “The territory no longer precedes the map, nor survives
it. Henceforth, it is the map that precedes the territory - precession of simulacra - it is the map
that engenders the territory and if we were to revive the fable today, it would be the territory
whose shreds are slowly rotting across the map. It is the real, and not the map, whose vestiges
subsist here and there, in the deserts which are no longer those of the Empire, but our own. The
desert of the real itself.” – Jean Baudrillard, Simulations, 1977
