Futuristic archaeology
Even with changes brought about by urbanization in recent years, 35% of Mongolians live a nomadic life and thus still depend on their vast land for survival. This is increasingly difficult because their traditional way of life is now being threatened by desertification. This project attempts to recreate the museum diorama with actual people and their real livestock in a real, but desertified, place in Mongolia.

على الرغم من التطوّرات التي شهدتها منغوليا في السنوات الأخيرة وارتفاع نسبة التمدّن فيها، ما زال 35% من الشعب المنغولي يعيش حياةً بدويّة ويعتمد على أرض بلده الشاسعة للاستمرار والبقاء. لكن، في يومنا هذا، أصبح أسلوب الحياة التقليديّ لهؤلاء الأشخاص مهدّداً بالخطر بسبب امتداد بقعة التصحّر. ومن هذا المنطلق، يأتي هذا المشروع ليعيد ابتكار المجسّمات الموضوعة في المتحف ولكنّه يستبدلها بأشخاص حقيقيّين مع ماشيتهم الحقيقيّة في موقعٍ متصحّرٍ حقيقيٍّ في منغوليا لتسليط الضوء على هذا الوضع المتردّي.
