Item description for Roni Horn: Dictionary of Water by Roni Horn...

What do you see when you look at water? American artist Roni Horn suggests 95 answers, 95 directions, 95 possibilities. Here is water as it continuously reshapes itself. Here is a dictionary because water is the ultimate lexicon, because Horn's work is always about completeness. This incredible collection of digitally manipulated photographic images are from Horn's long-term project documenting the River Thames. With this project, she has now completed her study of the river, and this luxurious volume is a perfect final statement of the work. Oversized, linen-bound, and slipcased, this book features stochastic screening on extremely heavy paper for the best possible reproduction quality.

Reviews - What do customers think about Roni Horn: Dictionary of Water?

Listen to the river  Feb 22, 2008
If you decide to purchase Dictionary of Water be aware that the title wants to be the author's personal interpretation of a seamless series of formally perfect images of the water of river Thames, with no trace of text or essay. Rich in details and superbly printed, it makes you think that if nature could speak a language, it's alphabet would look like this book. Dictionary of Water is therefore also a beautiful object, nicely bound and printed on a luxury heavy satin paper. Being a conceptual project, this work might disappoint readers who expect some sort of explanation guiding them inside the motivations and the purposes of the artist, but those who know Roni Horn's style will definitely appreciate it. My advice is to look carefully again and again at pictures after the first quick glance. Water has its forms, but also reflects colours and clearness of what's around, therefore giving the viewer a reference about the weather, the light, indirect clues of life and history flowing around the big moody river. Concentrate on the pictures, and let the book absorb you, without wondering too much about its meaning, just like when listening to music: this is the best way of appreciating Roni Horn's work.
