*Book Cover image: "Bed of Nets," fishing drift nets on an iron bed. Lost fishing drift nets, called ghost nets, were the inspiration for Aviva Rahmani's Ghost Nets project, which transformed a coastal town dump site into flourishing wetlands habitat. Ghost nets can extend over many ocean miles. They are invisible, indestructible and continue to fish and destroy marine life for many years, just as the habits and routines we take for granted can destroy our own lives. Installation by Aviva Rahmani 1994.
