Item description for Gabriel Orozco: From Green Glass to Airplane by Gabriel Orozco & Martjin van Nieuwenhuijzen...
"In 1993, Gabriel Orozco removed a lengthwise section of a Citro'n DS and reconnected the two sides, making the car's fleet form look lighter yet. In From Green Glass to Airplanes, Orozco continues to experiment with form and play with the viewer's perceptions. His work is singular in its balancing of political and social commitment with an exploration and deconstruction of the possibilities of sculpture, photography, and art. This sizeable and extensive volume features 544 pages of Orozco's work with over 250 images of his work reproduced in full color."

Be warned Dec 27, 2001
The description on this site makes this book seem like it's an overview of Orozco's work (which truly is amazing). But be warned: it is only filled with video stills which aren't nearly as interesting as his photography and sculpture. If you're looking for a good sampling of Orozco's work to add to your art book collection, I'd suggest passing over this book as it really isn't a good example of the breadth of his talent.
