Installation art, through the use of sculptural materials and other media, seeks to modify the way we experience a particular space. Installation art incorporates almost any media to create a visceral and/or conceptual experience in a particular environment. Installation artists often use the space of the gallery directly. Some installations are site-specific in that they are designed to only exist in the space for which they were created.
