Out There: Arik Levy
Out There gives an overview of Arik Levy's outdoor creations. Concerned with manufacturing processes and industrial forms, Levy's works are informed by the materials he adopts, some of these taking shape as highly polished metal sculptures, and outdoor rock works with shooting shards of metal. The constraints of these industrial forms in relation to the ideology of nature and natural materials opens another line of investigation permeating his practice.

Experimental Eating
Profiling a range of culinary pioneers working across the fields of art, science, theatre, catering and design, Experimental Eating demonstrates how current creative collaborations are pushing the boundaries of how we understand, experience and relate to food and the rituals of dining. The book encompasses unusual and cutting-edge foods, radical dining events, kitchen laboratory experiments, food sculptures and other documentation of the transient moments that make up this field of experimentation. A selection of short essays situate these contemporary practices alongside various historical and cultural contexts, including: a history of food in modern and contemporary art, such as Gordon Matta-Clarke's FOOD cafe, Rikrit Tiravanija's FREE and Pad Thai events, and Grizedale Arts and Yangjiany Group's makeshift cafe for Frieze Projects 2012; a study of the connections between dining, theatre and ritual; and a survey of recent research in science and technology, and how this may impact on how we make, eat and perceive food.

Arik Levy: Art
Arik Levy: Art, published as a sister volume to a forthcoming book on Levy's design, encompasses the last ten years of the Israeli born, Paris-based, practitioner's output. Artist, technician, photographer, designer and filmmaker, Levy's skills and indeed outlook are entirely multidisciplinary, whilst his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Influenced by Arte Povera, he is comparable to Anish Kapoor and Jeff Koons in sharing an exploration of advanced manufacturing processes within his work, often taking the form of highly polished metal structures. Yet Lev y is distinctly committed to an ideology of nature and natural materials despite his working with the constraints of industrial forms and manufacturing processes. Indeed he considers himself more of a feeling artist, this tactile association with nature fostered perhaps by his background and time spent in different corners of the globe. To that extent, perhaps his harmonious approach disseminates his interest in the difficulties of categorisation within areas of the arts, where objects, critiqued in often abstract terms, as being either 'design' or 'art' are judged differently in terms of value, both financial and critical. In part this argument is addressed in the separation of his work into two volumes, with the second, companion volume Arik Levy: Design, being published next season.

Null Object: Gustav Metzger Thinks About Nothing
Null Object charts the collaboration between London Fieldworks (Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson) and internationally celebrated artist Gustav Metzger to create a sculptural work by linking a computer-brain interface with industrial manufacturing technology. Using bespoke software, London Fieldworks produced 3-D information from EEG readings of Metzger's brainwaves as he attempted to think about nothing. This data was translated into instructions for a manufacturing robot, which carved out shapes from the interior of a block of stone to create a void. An introduction by the artists, a text by Gustav Metzger and essays by writers across literature, art, science and technology explore the historical and conceptual grounding for and broader implications of Null Object's production process. Novelist Hari Kunzru explores nothingness as a productive category, while Dr Christopher Tyler, inventor of the random-dot autostereogram, contrasts representations of negative space in art practice with perceptual representations in science. Essays by Nick Lambert and Bronac Ferran examine the resonances of Metzger's participation in the project. Lambert situates London Fieldworks' practice within questions about the place of the human in the informational world; Ferran focuses on Metzger's commitment to the the radical consequences of emptiness within both modernist discourse and the context of ecological crisis. A timely addition and challenge to the present climate of technological evolution and increasing cybernetic augmentation, Null Object offers an alternative model for a creative, non-invasive interface between body, mind and machine.

Amnesiac Hide
Mike Nelson's newly commissioned installation, commissioned on behalf of Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, and The Power Plant, Toronto, presents its audience with the notion of the lone traveller. Drawing on archetypes such as the fur trapper, the pioneering explorer, the Beatnik and the biker, Mike Nelson offers a new reading of the lone traveller, focusing on the significance of these characters in the context of masculinity and spirituality. Nelson is best known for his architectural installations, which unfold as narrative structures, where the viewer moves through seemingly abandoned rooms devoid of figures. This publication will draw out Nelson's frequent return to the figure, namely the archetypal lone wanderer, who underlays much of his work whether as an implied trace or as sculptural assemblages. While drawing from a wide range of Nelson's work, the book will spotlight The Amnesiacs, a serial work begun by the artist in 1996 and revisited for these exhibitions through two new commissions. To accompany this new body of work, which comprises Nelson's first solo shows in Canadian institutions, the artist is also producing an ambitious publication that presents developmental imagery alongside installation shots of the new installations.

Make Build Create: Sculpture Projects for Children
Make, Build, Create is an easy to follow, beautifully illustrated collection of hands-on sculptural activities and projects for children. Make, Build, Create provides the opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to develop their artistic abilities and fulfill an enjoyment of creating through art. Children are encouraged to explore how they might transform a wide variety of natural and man-made materials through a series of open-ended projects. Inspiration is taken from architecture, landscapes, figures, and objects in the everyday environments around us. These carefully selected activities enable children to learn sculptural techniques such as casting, carving and construction while making personal sculptural artworks.Make, Build, Create has project ideas for all abilities, and encourages a playful attitude to exploring materials and sculpture. The book will appeal to children (and their parents!) aged 6 upwards wanting new projects to try at home, and also to teachers and facilitators for use in a more formal education setting.The author, Paula Briggs, co-founder and director of visual arts education charity AccessArt, has extensive experience conducting sculpture workshops with children of all ages. The projects included in Make, Build, Create involve her expertise in broadening children's artistic horizons and building confidence in their new skills. Paula Briggs is the best-selling author of Drawing Projects for Children (Black Dog Publishing, March 2015).

Sculpture Shock: Site specific interventions in subterranean, ambulatory and historic contexts
Revealing the processes and production of nine artists during the ground breaking Sculpture Shock award (2013-2015) for temporary site-specific interventions. It took sculpture out of the often clinical confines of the gallery space and into non-traditional environments, with a view to reintegrating art into everyday life.The site-specific interventions took the form of installation, performance, socially engaged and object-based work in media as diverse as light, sound and text into unusual sites: subterranean (the unseen world beneath our city), ambulatory (without physical confines in movement through space and time) and historic (an illustrious building in London). This richly illustrated publication is contextualised throughout by: Dave Beech, writer, curator and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art; Richard Cork, British art historian, editor, critic and broadcaster; and Sarah Kent, former visual arts editor of Time Out and the ICA's Director of Exhibitions.

Susan Hiller: The Dream and the Word
A new series in collaboration with Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Italy, each book focusing on a different artist that has taken part in their Advanced Course in Visual Arts. The books focus on the individual artists, their work, the themes that were addressed on the course and their commentary on the contemporary art world. The starting point of this new book is Hiller's project called The Dream Seminar II, which took place last summer with young artists at the Fondazione Antonio Ratti. This project, based on an early work of hers from 1973, was an investigation into the sources of images and ideas. Participants were asked to create dream notebooks and to share their dreams. The project was conceived as a collaborative work, or proposal for a collective work, based on these experiences. Susan Hiller: The Dream and the Word contains sketches, texts, diagrams and notebook pages focusing on individual dreams and the relationships between dreams, narratives and images. It provides a unique and timely insight into Hiller's approach to thinking and working.

In the Aura of a Hole
In The Aura of a Hole explores the work of A Laurie Palmer an artist, writer, and teacher. Her work is concerned, most immediately, with resistance to privatisation, and more generally, with theoretical and material explorations of matter's active nature as it asserts itself on different scales and at different speeds. Her work takes various forms - as sculpture, installation, public projects, and writing. This publication focuses specifically on a decade-long project Palmer undertook - an extended exploration of mineral extraction sites in the US. Through her narration, the project discusses themes of the raw scientific and mechanical aspects of the industry, alongside environmental justice, First Nation rights, industrial agriculture, chemical weapons, low temperature physics, the Cold War, the Iraq War, biotechnology, bio geochronology, nanotechnology, Homeland Security, globalised trade, global warming and unemployment. Palmer has shown her work, both independently and with the four-person art collective Haha, at national and international venues since 1988, and has published writing since 1986. Palmer teaches in the Sculpture Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her works are in the collections of institutions such as the City of Linz, Austria; the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago; The University of Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the University Galleries, Illinois State.

Who Cares?: Inquiries Into Contemporary Sculpture
Who Cares?, the fourth in the Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, examines issues of reception and care in contemporary sculpture. The book is a provocation into the complex conditions of caring in contemporary art and sculpture. Perhaps first directed to the viewer of an artwork, Who Cares? asks about audience engagement as well as the critical reception of sculpture. What is particular to sculpture and its viewers? And what is particular to sculpture and criticism? Further, the question leading this volume interrogates artisticcommitment to sculpture as a discipline as well the perimeters of institutional departments, beginning with disciplinary definitions and extending to the realms of exhibition practices and conservation concerns.Who Cares? points to the range of responsibilities that objects engender, collating perspectives about why we care, why we don't care, who should care, and who shouldn't care. Once brought into this world, objects demand our attention, and this book delves into the different ways this may take form, digging into sculptural concerns from the process of making to displaying to maintaining. Who Cares? features contributions from leading and emerging voices in the field, including Kelly Akashi, Sam Anderson, Aaron Angell, Leonor Antunes, Karen Archey, Eva Barois De Caevel, Jenny Jaskey, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Helen Marten, Laura McLean-Ferris, Manuela Moscoso, Kate Newby, Britta Peters, Kari Rittenbach and Rayyane Tabet. This book follows the first three titles produced in partnership with SculptureCenter: Where is Production?, What About Power? and How Does it Feel?.
