Installation Art: The term installation art is used to describe large-scale, mixed-media constructions, often designed for a specific place or for a temporary period of time. Installation artworks (also sometimes described as “environments) often occupy an entire room or gallery space that the spectator has to walk through in order to engage fully with the work of art. – Tate Modern
