New York-based Dennis Oppenheim has been active in many realms: conceptual and performance art, earthworks and photography. He was recently recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2007 Vancouver Sculpture Biennale. Following his early earthworks, Oppenheim began creating the whimsical, architecturally-derived public sculpture for which he is known today--works such as "Tempest in a Teacup" (1992), a steel and glass piece located in the mountains of Andorra, which responds to the proximity of the sky and changing weather conditions. This overview of public commissions includes recent works like the large, football-shaped "Electric Field" (2006) at Oregon State University, which employs fluorescent lights to portray the strategic movements possible in a game.
