Christo: Surrounded Islands 1980-1983
by Werner Spies
Publisher's Description
In May of 1983, Christo completely surrounded 11 islands in Biscayne Bay with bright pink polypropylene fabric. "His idea--to create public art that dramatized the relationship between land and water--was realized by playing the luminous pink of his fabric against the light of the city's sky, the colors of its tropical vegetation, and the jewel-like tone of the bay's shallow waters."--the publisher. Christo's special attention to the design and layout of this magnificent record make it the proper culmination of the project.
