Limited to 1000 copies, Circumventions presents artist Michael Rakowitz's paraSITE installation, custom built inflatable shelters designed for homeless people that attach to the exterior outtake vents of a building’s HVAC system. The book includes other projects by Rakowitz, including his 2000 installation at MoMA PS1 Climate Control which consisted of ducts routed through one of the galleries and through a window. An interview with Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev explores Rakowitz's ideas and motivations.
