Cover Design:
The cover, illustrated by The
Blue Chemist, is syndicated
from DOMUS 1024 which deals
with the themes of LAND and
LANDSCAPE. As we bring the
thematics of TIME and
TIMESCAPES to sit next to the
ideas of LAND and
LANDSCAPES in this issue, the
image presents a provocative
amalgamation of TIME and
LAND. As natural and humanbuilt
landforms both exist in a
state of dynamic tension in this
image, we can somewhere
perceive the patience as well as
the urgency of Time, where
Land negotiates ruin and
regeneration simultaneously.
