Installation art is an artistic genre that uses three-dimensional objects. These artworks are usually meant to change the perception of a space. Installation artworks can be permanent or temporary and can be shown in museums, art galleries or in public spaces.
The origin of installation art can be found in Marcel Duchamp's readymade objects. However, the real development started in the 1970s. Nowadays with the improvement of technology artists use and cross new medias and may involve sensors too in order to make the visitors interact with the installations.
