An inventory of amazing, crystalline artworks made in collaboration with the Dead Sea
Using the world's saltiest sea as her laboratory, Israeli artist Sigalit Landau (born 1969) "baptizes" various everyday objects (clothing, musical instruments) in the Dead Sea, immersing them so that they resemble otherworldly entities. This book documents her process.

This volume presents Israeli installation artist Sigalit Landau's most recent project--a political take on ritualized eating as cultural metaphor, exhibited at Berlin's KW Institute in early 2008--alongside a comprehensive overview. The Dining Hall provokes a "truly controversial discourse of a kind rarely found in today's art," according to artforum.com.
