ABOUT THIS BOOK:
A creative and dynamic volume by Arakawa and Gins, who have been called the most philosophical of living artists, which collects their writings and art work from a period of nearly 2 decades. They address the essential art query of our time: How does it all fit together? Art and science happens in fragments. They take fragments, and they try, by making linkages to perceiving tactics immediate, to draw these tactics, these ways of construing a demonstrably conceivable whole that are the perceiver-reader, into a unified field that they refer to as "the perceiving field." They propose to re-create and to rejoin fragments, and would-be fragments, so as to make a new whole.(Publisher). Very good. Item #7842
