An installation is a visual or sonic art work that is designed to be 'installed' in a given space, creating an entire sensory experience for the viewer. It can be of any length, can occupy any space (or even several spaces), and can be of any size. It also often has a clear connection with 'real life' and the space in which it is presented.
