For their first collaboration, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov built an immense, spiraling multi-story canvas and wood structure lit from within like a Chinese lantern. Inside, the Kabakovs installed 65 projects that ranged from the sublime to the common-place, and included proposals for gaining self-awareness by becoming a beggar or an angel; for punishing household objects for our mistfortunes; for redistributing the world's energy supply with space-based transmitters; for "cloud management" through a system of pumps and pipes; and even for taking a vacation without ever leaving your bed. Through photographs and essays by the artists, this publication documents the development and realization of "The Palace of Projects."
