  • Installation art is the use of sculptural materials andother interesting material to transform a spaceor, arguably, an area. Installation art is not necessarilyconfined to gallery spaces and can be any materialintervention in everyday public or private spaces.Installation art incorporates almost any media tocreate an experience in a particular environment.Materials used in contemporary installation art rangefrom everyday and natural materials to new mediasuch as video, sound, performance, immersive virtualreality and the internet. Some installations are site-specific in that they are designed to only exist in thespace for which they were created.
  • Site-specific art is artworkcreated to exist in a certainplace. Typically, the artisttakes the location into accountwhile planning and creatingthe artwork
  • Land art, Earthworks, or Earth art is an artmovement which emerged in the United States in thelate 1960s and early 1970s, in which landscape and thework of art are inextricably linked. Sculptures are notplaced in the landscape, rather the landscape is thevery means of their creation. The works frequently existin the open, located well away from civilization, left tochange and erode under natural conditions. Many ofthe first works, created in the deserts of Nevada, NewMexico, Utah or Arizona were ephemeral in natureand now only exist as video recordings or photographicdocuments.
