When this book first appeared in 1982, it introduced readers to Robert Irwin, the Los Angeles artist who one day got hooked on his own curiosity and decided to live it. Now expanded to include six additional chapters and twenty-four pages of color plates,Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Seeschronicles three decades of conversation between Lawrence Weschler and light and space master Irwin. It surveys many of Irwin's site-conditioned projectsin particular the Central Gardens at the Getty Museum (the subject of an epic battle with the site's principal architect, Richard Meier) and the design that transformed an abandoned Hudson Valley factory into Dia's new Beacon campusenhancing what many had already considered the best book ever on an artist.
Lawrence Weschler's many books includeMr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, Vermeer in Bosnia,andEverything That Rises: A Book of Convergences,which won the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism.
