Reasons for knocking at an empty house : writings 1973-1994 by Bill Viola( Book )
23 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and German and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the last 25 years, Viola has used innovative multimedia technologies to explore the phenomenon of sense perception as a language of the body and avenue to self-knowledge, integrating many disciplines and philosophies to reveal contemporary art's relevance to the modern world. His views have deep roots in mysticism, poetry, philosophy, Eastern art, shamanism, Chinese Taoism, Sufism, and Zen Buddhism. One of Viola's chief concerns today is to focus on the connection between our inner and outer lives, on the conception of the self as part of the whole
Gehry draws by Frank O Gehry( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gehry has described drawing as his way of "thinking aloud"; Gehry Draws traces that thinking through 29 major projects, providing a privileged view of the creative practice of a master architect. More than 360 drawings (most of which are previously unpublished) and more than 400 additional illustrations chart the evolution of Gehry images from marks on the page to three-dimensional models to completed buildings. Horst Bredekamp's introduction relates Gehry's drawing methods to the concept of "disegno," as practiced by Leonardo and Durer - not only the act of drawing and modeling but also the dynamics of creative thinking." "Gehry himself describes his method for Bredekamp in several explanatory sketches, and Bredekamp applies this to a study of drawings made for specific Gehry commissions. Virtual-reality filmmaker Rene Daalder and writer Mark Rappolt return this discussion to the twenty-first century, looking at, among other things, analog methods in the digital world of contemporary architecture."--BOOK JACKET
I want to spend the rest of my life everywhere, with everyone, one to one, always, forever, now by Damien Hirst( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Due to popular demand, this extraordinary book project by Damien Hirst is now available in a reduced format. This dynamic and provocative collection of Hirst's ideas and obsessions is a powerful combination of text and visual elements. Each piece is set against a visual narrative of drawings, words, photography, typography, pop-ups, and other special effects that make this book like no other. An essay by cult novelist Gordon Burn looks at Hirst's work and the breadth of its impact. Designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, this is a landmark publication that has redefined the fine art monograph. AUTHOR BIO: Damien Hirst was born in Bristol and studied fine art at Goldsmiths College in London. In 1995, he won the prestigious Turner Prize.

From the classic designs of the 1960s and 1970s to the vibrant, ecologically and technologically advanced styles of today, Kvadrat has worked with some of the icons of 20th-century art and design, including Nanna Ditzel and Verner Panton, and nurtured important relationships with many of the world's most creative artists, architects, and designers, such as David Adjaye, Patricia Urquiola, Roman Signer, Thomas Demand, and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.This beautiful volume, designed by Graphic Thought Facility, celebrates the textiles of Kvadrat, drawing a thread from its deep roots in the coastal landscape of Denmark to a herd of Icelandic sheep bred and reared by artist Olafur Eliasson.
