“The resident … raises his eyes from the fertile valley of the Nile to the bare hills, and lowers them once more with the feeling that he has looked at the wall of the garden, the boundary of the land” Egyptologist Arthur Weigall 1924

The body of work discusses the ceaseless utopian dream of occupying the desert. And questions the alternatives proposed that justify the expansion into this entity.
