James Turrell: Geometry of LightJames Turrell: Geometry of Light

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Ursula Sinnreich. Text by Gernot Böhme, Julian Heynen, Agostino de Rosa.

Nobody who has experienced an installation by James Turrell forgets the encounter--he makes light tangible in ways that boggle perception and almost seem to defy physics, as if you could reach into the space you see when you close your eyes. A lifelong explorer of perceptual psychology, Turrell is undoubtedly the most influential contemporary light artist, as well as one of America's most popular artists. In Geometry of Light, the first significant Turrell survey in many years, an extraordinary body of work covering several decades is assessed. At the book's center is the series of works known as Sky Spaces, a signature Turrell conception in which the sky is made to seem "on top of" the room's ceiling, and which has become a mini-genre unto itself within light art. Academic, philosophical and art-historical essays explicate these perceptual spaces, whose evolution is closely allied to Turrell's development of the Roden Crater Project in the Arizona desert, where he began constructing an observatory in 1974. Also included is the latest installation, "Skyspace/Camera Obscura Space," which Turrell conceived for the Zentrum für Internationale Lichtkunst in Unna, Germany.
As an undergraduate, James Turrell (born in Los Angeles, 1943) studied psychology and mathematics, transitioning to art only at MFA level. A practicing Quaker, one of his earliest memories is of his grandmother inviting him to "go inside and greet the light" at Quaker meetings. The recipient of several prestigious awards such as Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellowships, Turrell lives in Arizona.

Blur of the Otherworldly: Contemporary Art, Technology, and the ParanormalBlur of the Otherworldly: Contemporary Art, Technology, and the Paranormal

Published by The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture.
Edited by Mark Alice Durant and Jane D. Marsching. Essays by Marina Warner and Lynne Tillman.

As technology has burgeoned in recent years, so have ghosts in the machine, or so the 29 artists featured here suggest. All use existing gadgets--photography, film, video, radio, Internet, and digital media--to explore age-old questions about parallel worlds and the paranormal. Photography has a long history with this topic--from the infamous Cottingham fairy photographs through studio spiritualist images to more recent grainy snapshots of Sasquatch and unexplained flying objects, it is often called upon by viewers to testify, and used by artists to move between science, fantasy and art. In days of millenial angst, ever-greater leaps of science, and ever-decreasing wilderness, other worlds seem as possible, probable, alluring, and potentially within reach of new technologies as they did in the days of fairies. Among the artists whose observations are recorded here are Jeremy Blake, Gregory Crewdson and Mariko Mori.

Nature's EffectNature's Effect

Published by Charta.
Edited by Mariuccia Casadio. Essays by Henrik Hakansson, Florian Huttner, Paul Morrison and Richard Woods.

Nature provides inexhaustible pretext for the construction of imagery in art, from the truthful to the fantastical, the documentary to the visionary, the biomorphic to the stylized. The four installations that constitute Nature's Effect never quite correspond to what we think we know about botany and the laws of physics, natural scenarios and artificial reconstructions, or human proportions in relation to the dimensions of the plant world. Nature's Effect is published in collaboration with Fondazione Nicola Trussardi.

Moreno Gentili: Europe TerminalMoreno Gentili: Europe Terminal

Technological Mutations

Published by Charta.
Essays by Gabriel Bauret, Giovanna Calvenzi, and Angela Vettese.

How has the Old Continent evolved in scientific terms at the beginning of the third millennium? European Terminal is a project by artist Moreno Gentili on the concept of technology and the human countenance. Space, food, weapons, biological sciences, nuclear energy, medicine, chemistry, pharmaceutical, environment, human resources, computing and more make up this photographic work begun in 1992. This anti-romantic project is the artist's vision of two parallel worlds. In one, Western wealth increases and the chaos and values which represent the concept of development and consumption in our time emerge. In the other, technology poisons mankind. Through more than 200 images, we get a glance at that utopia hidden in the heart of the old continent, which, according to Gentili, has sold its soul to increasingly sophisticated and evolved machines.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Gregor Podnar. Text by Viktor Misiano, Diana Baldon, Thibault de Ruyter.

Vadim Fishkin began his career in the 1980s as part of the thriving Moscow art scene, and moved in the mid-90s to Ljubljana. This retrospective monograph, featuring works created between 1996 and 2006, is divided into thematic chapters like "Biology," "Mathematics," "Chemistry" and "Physics"--recalling the organization of children’s textbooks.

Riera I Aragó: IconographyRiera I Aragó: Iconography

Published by Ediciones Poligrafa.
Essay by ValentĂn Roma.

Iconography considers a major period in Riera I Aragó's long career and considers the principal motifs--planes, submarines, stelae, the Aral Sea, islands--that form the alphabet of his artistic idiom. In an oeuvre where reality and fiction blur together, astronomy, botany, mathematics and mysticism all come into play.

Precisions: Architecture Between Sciences and the ArtsPrecisions: Architecture Between Sciences and the Arts

Theory Building Vol.1

Published by Jovis.
Edited by Ákos Moravánszky, Ole W. Fischer.

Architecture has always been an interdisciplinary vocation, requiring both scientific aptitude and aesthetic flair of its practitioners. But with the huge technological developments in architecture--in its materials, design and implementation--over the past century or so, could it be that the discipline has now moved closer to the sciences and away from the arts? If so, what might that mean for its future? In this examination of the subject by various authors, the term "precision" serves as a guideline to track the influence of scientific method on architecture and art. Well-known authors explore this influence from several perspectives-from digital design strategies in lightweight construction to filigree architectural projects. Practical examples are flanked by essays on art and architectural theory, in which proposals are also made for the future of digitalization and cybernetics in architecture.

Jim Sanborn: Atomic TimeJim Sanborn: Atomic Time

Pure Science and Seduction

Published by Corcoran Gallery of Art.
Edited by Jonathan P. Binstock. Essays by Milena Kalinovska, Barbara London and Howard Morland Foreword by Jacquelyn Days Serwer.

In Atomic Time, sculptor, photographer and conceptual artist Jim Sanborn has combined his longstanding interests in invisible natural forces and secrecy, pairing together two separate but related projects: a series of photographs called Atomic Time and images of his latest work, the room-sized installation Critical Assembly. Inspired by the Manhattan Project, the first nuclear weapons program at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, Critical Assembly is a representation of what was once a secret site of government-sponsored research. The installation includes actual examples of electronic instruments, hardware, furniture, tools and materials from the Los Alamos Laboratory of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, which Sanborn acquired from retirees living in New Mexico who worked on the Project. The photographs in the Atomic Series are distinguished by an intense cobalt blue-like color, similar to the true color of radioactivity. Half of the series is of abstract images made by exposing sheet film to actual pieces of uranium ore; the other represents an assortment of radium-dial alarm clocks made between 1920 and 1950, acquired from regions around the Trinity Site in New Mexico, where the first atomic bomb exploded.
