As multi-faceted as the artist herself, this stunningly illustrated book on Sophie Calle's recent installations displays her genius for entwining personal experience with universal truth. Throughout her career, the photographer and installation artist Sophie Calle has been creating tableaux that recreate her personal journeys. Projects from the past 10 years are explored in this magnificently illustrated volume. Following on the heels of Calle's highly acclaimed Did You See Me? this new book offers numerous images of Calle's most recent works. Among the projects included are "The Phone Booth, Garigiliano Bridge," which involved a public phone that Calle called at random to initiate conversations with strangers; "Take Care of Yourself," which documents the interpretations of more than 100 women of a breakup note Calle received from a former lover; "The North Pole," a touching tribute to the artist's mother that imagines her realizing a lifelong dream; and the latest iteration of "What do You See," which was created in response to one of the most brazen art heists of all time, at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Many ongoing series are also illustrated here, including "Unfinished," "Herein Lie Secrets," and "Photos without Stories." Calle's many fans will discover how the artist continues to examine the boundaries of public and private life in ways that surprise, engage, and inspire.

Antimicrobial polymers are materials that prevent microorganism growth and are needed for many everyday applications from food packaging and water treatment to medicine and healthcare. This new book covers different areas of antimicrobial materials based on polymers including chitosan, polymers with ammonium and phosphonium groups, polymer nanofibers, carbon-based polymer Nanocomposites, polymeric and non-polymeric metal complexes, and biomimetic materials. By combining the information of different materials as well as antimicrobial action modes and applications within one source, the book provides a general summary of the field. Polymeric Materials with Antimicrobial Activity starts with a general introduction to antimicrobial polymers and presents the most common types of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, yeast and algae) along with the main areas of application of antimicrobial polymeric materials. Specific chapters then detail different polymer systems covering the fundamental issues of synthesis, characterization, physico-chemical properties and applications. With contributions from leading scientists the book is suitable for researchers in polymers, chemistry, biology and materials science interested in an overview of antimicrobial polymeric materials as well as the recent advances in their synthesis, properties and applications.

In See the Sea, Sophie Calle invited inhabitants of Istanbul, who often originated from central Turkey, to see the sea for the first time. The exhibition of the same name was presented at the Méjan Chapel in Arles during summer 2012, then at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris, 8 September to 27 October 2012, before visiting Japan in 2013. The exhibition comprises fourteen 5-minute videos by Caroline Champetier. Each person is filmed from behind, facing the sea. Listening to the distant sound of waves, we are simultaneously also invited to gaze at the sea. After several minutes the person filmed turns around to face the camera, revealing the emotions the experience has procured. Based on the exhibition, the catalogue features photographs of the people, brought together by a single event: In Istanbul, a city surrounded by sea, I met people who had never seen it and filmed them for the first time. Sophie Calle once more refers the gaze back to its own experiences, reminding us that even the simplest things in life can be exceptional, while inviting us to rediscover our daily lives.
