Sarah Sze is an artist who uses humble materials to create strikingly original sculptures and astonishingly intricate site-specific installations. Her works, each of which she constructs by hand, transform everyday objects into gravity-defying works in horizontal and tower-like f...ormations that zig-zag into the heights of the rooms that try to contain them. The pieces often seem to teeter on the brink of existence, built just at the edge of their ability to sustain themselves structurally. This seeming ephemerality conveys a sense of the fleeting existence of objects, situations and places. This book is the first monograph to include works that span the course of her career and includes images of both her sculptures, installations as well as her drawings.
