"This book - the first retrospective publication of Flavin's art since 1969 - features the artist's most significant light works, beginning with a pivotal series of constructed boxes with attached incandescent or fluorescent lights, called icons, made from 1961 to 1963. These icons demonstrate the influence of painters such as Barnett Newman as well as object makers such as Marcel Duchamp. Works spanning Flavin's career are discussed in depth, including examples that integrate light with the surrounding space and show the particular characteristics of blended fluorescent light, large-scale installations, and constructed corridors. The book also features reproductions of Flavin's drawings, which reveal his thought processes, working methods, and the wider range of his interests." "Three critical essays offer overviews and new interpretations of Flavin's work, while an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history present scholarly data never before available. In addition, this book includes Flavin's seminal text "'...in daylight or cool white.' an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, and two interviews with the artist - one from 1972 and the other from 1982."
