British artist Rachel Whiteread's first U.S. commission, Water Tower, is a translucent resin cast of a wooden water tank, raised seven stories above the streets of Soho. Recipient of the Turner Prize in 1993 (the first woman to do so) for her installation House, a concrete cast of the interior of a soon-to-be-demolished East London house, Whiteread continues her investigations into the relationship between art and urban society. Her reversal of matter and space in House gave the interior space a physical presence, a tangibility. Water Tower is not a simple inversion; its untouchable presence on the skyline provoking thought on it, and art's, place within the city.
