Gary Hill. Tall Ships #2

You enter a long, dark corridor. Indistinct luminous shapes seem to move in place on the walls. Then a human figure rises, walks towards you, stands and gazes at you, becomes almost intimate with you before turning back whence it came. In this award-winning interactive installation created by video projection, world-renowned artist Gary Hill presents an underworld-like journey from which each visitor returns to daylight somehow transformed. The second book in an ongoing series of the Quasha & Stein dialogue on Gary Hill leads you on an initiatory journey that parallels the experience of the installation itself. The book is beautifully illustrated in duotone to give a living sense of the actual installation as it appeared in the Whitney Museum (New York) and many other museums throughout the US and Europe.
