Summary "Internationally acclaimed artist Ann Hamilton creates sensory environments that combine sound, text, video, photographs, books, and huge quantities of material substances - 10 tons of Linotype slugs, 750,000 pennies (the budget of a project, translated into the smallest monetary unit and laid into a skin of honey), 48,000 blue work pants and shirts. These process-oriented installations, perhaps more accurately called tableaux vivants, are so particular to their sites that, after their initial showing, they survive only in photographs, sketches, and other descriptive documents. Of more than sixty installations created by Hamilton since 1981, only a fraction have been published in journals and exhibition catalogues, and few but the most intrepid travelers have experienced a significant number of these works in person, along the international routes in Sao Paulo, Sydney, and Venice, or across North America, from Banff, Canada, to Santa Barbara, California, to Columbus, Ohio, and Charleston, South Carolina. This book represents the most complete documentation of all her temporal projects, as well as installation-related photographs, video, audio, prints, and objects."--Jacket.
