This volume records an installation by British artist Mike Nelson (born 1967) in a former cabaret theatre in Berlin which closed around 1934. Nelson’s two-part installation consisted of two "platforms": the first was the main stage area, the second led to a vertical shaft of light that transformed viewers into performers.

In 2007, artist Mike Nelson transformed the disused interior of the Essex Street Market on New York's Lower East Side, taking audiences on a journey through his installation “A Psychic Vacuum,” a series of reconstructed rooms and passageways filled with enigmatic props, clues and assemblies. Over the next two years, the artist meticulously recreated that journey in this superbly designed and fully illustrated artist's book.
