The Mongolian word Baigala “is best understood as a complex interactive field comprised of being (humans, animals), object (mountains, trees, rocks, grasses), and forces (weather) that are governed by beings akin to spirits (Humphrey and Sneath, 1999, 2) - by Lauren Bonilla

Beneath the Surface II is a work-in-progress piece which responds to writing and objects provided by UCL Anthropologist Lauren Bonilla. Lauren’s field research and work in Western Mongolia has a focus on extractive atmospheres. The piece seen here is an illustrative interpretation of experiential moments in my recent trip to western Mongolia, as well as concepts pulled from the research and discussion with Lauren.
