Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s installation work provided a new understanding of scale, medium and accessibility, forming a lexicon beyond previous perceived notions. Completed in 1983, Surrounded Islands (shown) stands as one of the most poignant public works of the century; the pair wrapped 11 islands in Miami’s Biscayne Bay with floating pink polypropylene fabric. The work spanned 7 miles and could be seen from land, water and air, boldly displaying the impact of man-made creations on the aquatic world.
