Reasons for knocking at an empty house : writings 1973-1994 by Bill Viola ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and German and held by 602 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 )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 514 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 More than 360 drawings (most of which are previously unpublished) and more than 400 additional illustrations chart the evolution of Gehry images from marks on the page to three-dimensional models to completed buildings.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
