This essay by Pier Luigi Tazzi on British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor takes a very in-depth philosophical approach to his work. The author discusses the void and the proliferation of objects in Kapoor's works. Kapoor's "Mountains" are discussed extensively in the essay and the author gives a good analysis of luminescence, the interval and material density in the work of the artist. The video documentary entitled "The Eye" (2002) features film footage of Kapoor's work and an in depth interview with the artist.
