Window - Interface

Windows both connect and divide interior and exterior, public and private spaces.  Interfaces update the function of the window in today’s world of omnipresent screens and digital information. Window?¦Interface, based on a forthcoming exhibition at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, explores how artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Cerith Wyn Evans, Monika Fleischmann, Kirsten Geisler, Pierre Huyghe, Richard Long, and others have addressed the role of windows and interfaces as mediums of perception and transport. The book investigates art that explores the limits of the body in relation to the surrounding world and reveals the embodied character of human experience.
Lavishly illustrated and accompanied by essays that situate the exhibition in the context of contemporary art, this volume is the second in the Kemper Art Museum’s Screen Arts and New Media Aesthetics series, inaugurated in 2006.
