This outstanding pictorial review of video sculptures of the 1980s by noted Italian artist Plessi (b. 1940) features full-page photographs documenting some 30 installations typified by Tempo liquido, a 1989 work composed of 21 monitors mounted on the blades of a functioning waterwheel. Three concise essays discuss the "humanistic technology" embodied in the dramatic assemblages of the artist, whose emphasis on natural materials and simple forms reflects the influence of Arte Povera.
