Rachel Whiteread is one of my favorite artists. She takes a unique look at the world by examining the spaces left behind, such as the underside of a chair and creating artwork around that. In 1993 she won the Turner Prize for her work "House" a casting of the interior of a building where the insides and secrets were laid bare, and set on the site where the house once stood. This book captures not only the process behind creating this work, but also detailed notes on how it began, what was needed and everything else. Photos capture the process from start to finish. Sadly this work was destroyed in 1994, but luckily we still have this book. A great addition to any art book collection, but well worth the read for any sculpture student.
