Art Beyond Art: Ecoaesthetics: A Manifesto for the 21st Century is a collection of articles and other writings by Rasheed Araeen, an artist, writer and Founding Editor of Third Text,  accompanied by his drawings, proposals, and photographs.  Araeen: "The land had always been an object of the artist’s gaze, but this time the gaze did not produce landscape painting. On the contrary, the conception of land as art itself became the artwork. This was achieved by intervening in the land and transforming it as something that continued to remain part of the land, either as a stationary object or what would transform itself continually.”
