Installations: Links and Ideas

Let this be a place to post links and share ideas.


Installations can play upon more than just the visual element. They can be passive, interactive or  have aspects of both.   I find those that incorporate environmentally generated movement and sound to be particularly memorable.


Here are a few that instantly spring from my memory

In addition, I thought I would add the "wiki" definition for installation art for reference purposes (and juust in case someone out there needed clarification)

 "Installation art uses sculptural materials and other media to modify the way we experience a particular space. Installation art is not necessarily confined to gallery spaces and can be any material intervention in everyday public or private spaces.

Installation art incorporates almost any media to create an experience in a particular environment. Materials used in contemporary installation art range from everyday and natural materials to new media such as video, sound, performance, computers and the internet. Some installations are site-specific in that they are designed to only exist in the space for which they were created."

And some more references:

Max Neuhaus

And let us not forget the King and Queen of large scale installations:

Christo and Jeanne Claude
