"During the?70s and?80s, Cohen turned her view-camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms, and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, and escapist motel rooms, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction, and social engineering. The occasional decoration added in attempts at individualism only serve to amplify their uniformity. In her hands, clouds peel off walls and forest glades invade indoor tennis courts. Cohen records the world?s ready-made sculptures, waiting to be framed by the photograph"--Publisher's website

The Catherine wheel by Twyla Tharp Dance Foundation( Visual )

26 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extraordinary choreographic vision of the modern world and modern life taking the martyrdom of Saint Catherine on the wheel as a point of departure. When Twyla Tharp's The Catherine Wheel premiered on Broadway, it was described by Arlene Croce--dance critic for The New Yorker magazine--as "A major event in our theater," with "dancing of astonishing beauty and power." It was then completely refashioned by Tharp especially for television, with computer-generated figures, shadow-play, and reverse action - creating a wholly separate video version that has also met with overwhelming praise. The work is set to an original score written and performed by David Byrne of Talking Heads, and grew out of Tharp's fascination with Saint Catherine, the 4th-century martyr who was condemned to die on a spiked wheel. Preceded by rehearsal footage and an interview with Tharp and leading members of her dance troupe as they explain the theme and preparations for the production
