By Jim Cogswell
This heavily illustrated book contains a full photographic documentation of the installation, as well as the artefacts that inspired it and preliminary studies, accompanied by essays and reactions to the work by artists, scholars and museum professionals.
Cosmogony is typically defined as the scientific field of study dedicated to the exploration of the solar system’s origins, but Cogswell embraces a broader use of the term, rooted in the kinds of human storytelling that shape our ethics, morals, and holistic understandings.
With contributions by Gunalan Nadarajan, Terry Wilfong, Kathryn Huss, MaryAnn Wilkinson, Claire Zimmerman, Karl Daubman, Daniel Herwitz and Raymond Silverman.
