Occupied territory by Lynne Cohen( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the ?70s and ?80s, Cohen turned her view-camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms, and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, and escapist motel rooms, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction, and social engineering. The occasional decoration added in attempts at individualism only serve to amplify their uniformity. In her hands, clouds peel off walls and forest glades invade indoor tennis courts. Cohen records the world?s ready-made sculptures, waiting to be framed by the photograph" -- Publisher's website
The Catherine wheel by Twyla Tharp Dance Foundation( Visual )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Twyla Tharp's The Catherine Wheel premiered on Broadway, it was described by Arlene Croce--dance critic for The New Yorker magazine--as "A major event in our theater," with "dancing of astonishing beauty and power." It was then completely refashioned by Tharp especially for television, with computer-generated figures, shadow-play, and reverse action - creating a wholly separate video version that has also met with overwhelming praise. The work is set to an original score written and performed by David Byrne of Talking Heads, and grew out of Tharp's fascination with Saint Catherine, the 4th-century martyr who was condemned to die on a spiked wheel

"8 out of 10"--Spin
And I'll scratch yours by Peter Gabriel( Recording )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The original concept was that And I'll Scratch Yours would serve as a companion piece to Gabriel's 2010 covers album Scratch My Back. The idea was to give the artists whose songs Gabriel covered on Scratch My Back a medium to reciprocate? And I'll Scratch Yours would feature those artists covering Gabriel's songs. However, several of the artists ultimately declined to record covers of Gabriel's material. The release version of the album deviated from its initial concept in having two new artists (Feist and Joseph Arthur) contributing covers to the album
