Israeli artist Adam Berg (born 1962) fuses scientific models with art historical references to create dynamic works exploring perceptual reality, in particular conceptions of evidence and fact. From meteorites that fall on the borders of Tel Aviv to polar bears that invade the Trevi Fountain, the subject of Berg's work is ultimately how numb we have become to life's extraordinary occurrences.

Israeli artist Adam Berg's Archipelago is a multifaceted project in an array of media including drawing, video-installation, sculpture and painting. Evoking the feel of a group of islands emerging from the sea, this project probes the realms of actual and virtual imagination and the experience of temporality in connection to ecology, culture and entropy. This volume documents components of the project--"Dive," "Entropic Islands" and "Polar Invasion"--from their first preliminary sketches to final realization, and includes drawings from 1986 through 2007, constituting a "layer of time." Adam Berg was born in 1962 in Tel Aviv. He studied at the University of Haifa, York University in Toronto and the University of Toronto. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and The Remba Gallery, Los Angeles.
