Why can nomads live such rich lives with so little stuff?
This question is embraced by a crowd of businesses, friends and art lovers. They have invested money, stories, equipment and more. I thank everyone who turned my sky castles into nomadic adventures
and I hope the Small Nomadic Atlas will bring us to new horizons.
Initiator Loes Glandorff.


For each project the Small Nomadic Atlas collaborates with different partners.
Coming soon: Nomad in Noord: prototype for a backyard nomad.

Invited by art project space Rhizomatic I took my research to the streets, travelling for six weeks through Amsterdam-North, accompanied by goats Tenger and Vlekje, sleeping in my BedMobile bicycle home. I was hosted by architects, a foreman and a writer, as well as a restaurant, park and cultural bar.

Nomadic journeys in Mongolia are sponsored by:

DSCF6035For three months I stayed with herds people and businessmen, reindeer riders and city folk to find out why Mongolian nomads can live so independently with so little stuff. To get me there about sixty individuals made donations, as well as companies from all over the Netherlands – and Mongolia.
