Book Description Harry N Abrams, 1997. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Over the last three decades, the artists Arakawa (b. 1936) and Madeline Gins (b. 1941) have created a remarkable body of work. For example, The Mechanism of Meaning -- a cycle of 83 mixed-media paintings begun in 1963 and completed, for the most part, by 1973 -- covers a variety of issues, including the nature of perception, how human beings function as persons, and the essential oneness of body and mind.Employing such diverse mediums as drawing, painting, sculpture, poetry, and recently architecture and city planning, Arakawa and Gins remain committed to pushing the boundaries of art beyond aesthetics toward an entire philosophy of living and being in the world. In their "reversible destiny architecture", the artists propose that through a reversal of conventional space-time, participants will come in contact with a boundless plasticity and, essentially, learn how not to die.Developed in cooperation with the artists and published on the occasion of an exhibition held at the Guggenheim Museum SoHo, New York, from late June through mid-September 1997, this fully illustrated volume includes essays by writers from many disciplines, The Mechanism of Meaning in its entirety, proposals for architectural constructions, designs for reversible destiny houses and cities, and key concepts underlying reversible destiny architecture.
