The much anticipated follow-up volume to our bestselling 2011 title Installation Art, this is the most impressive collection of renowned avant-garde installation pieces to-date. Only top-tier projects are featured, including biennale pieces from many different countries. Interior gallery and museum installations encourage poetic new ways of looking at enclosed space, while exterior projects on both large and small scales astound through their dramatic use of materials and reinvent the urban and rural built environment. Pink balloons are suspended in rows above the main thoroughfare of a major city, a prism of colored threads hung in the air makes an otherwise blasé staircase magical, thin rays of light hover in space, a hole in a gallery wall reveals an entire hidden realm composed of layered ice blocks, while neoclassical arched windows pour transparent crystallized ice flows out onto marble floors. This beautiful book completely changes how we look at our everyday surroundings and their possibilities.
