Her work, sometimes compared to scientific models, is distinguished by her intricate constructions using myriad ordinary objects and images that evidence the imprints of contemporary life. Szes Guggenheim exhibition, which centers on the artists monumental Timekeeper (2016)one of the first in her eponymous series of celebrated multimedia installationsis a reflection on how our experience of time and place is continuously reshaped in a digitally and materially saturated world.

This book is a rich, immersive document of the singular relationship Sze cultivated with the museums Frank Lloyd Wrightdesigned building over the five years she spent developing this site-specific presentation. The majority of the volume is given over to expansive installation photographs, as well as sketches by the artist. An illustrated essay by curator Kyung An probes the depths of the exhibitions thread of serendipitous encounters, while contributions by Hilton Als and Molly Nesbit expand the scope, offering explorations of the origins and resonances of Szes practice of timekeeping and what can be grasped through the passage of time, memory, and images.
