This is the first ever comprehensive monograph of Lucy Gunning's work 1993–2006. Beautifully illustrated, with essays by three renowned writers, it focuses on themes and concerns of this artist: behaviour and psychological space, performativity, the voice, and relationships between the mediums of film and video, architecture, performance and sculpture.

The book looks in details at the celebrated works Climbing Around My Room, first shown at New Contemporaries, 1994; The Horse Impressionists, 1994, Intermediate 11, 2001, commissioned by Greenenaftali, New York, also shown at Art Now, Tate Britain, 2001; Quarry, 2003 commissioned by Spike Island, Bristol; Esc, 2004; and Malcolm, Lloyd, Angela, Norman and Jane, 1997, both commissioned by Matt's Gallery, London.
