Since the late 1960's Mary Miss has shaped landscape and everyday materials into sculptures that invite ecploration and erase boundaries between architecture, landscape architecture and fine art. Mary miss has reshaped the boundaries between sculpture, architectures, landscape design, and installation art by articulating a cision of the public sphere where it is possible for an artist to address the issures of our time. Trained as a sculpture, her work creates situations emphasizing a site's history, its ecology, or aspects of the environment that have gone unnoticed.
