Art pieces rarely cause actual death or destruction, despite how controversial they may be. But when Maurice Agis created a site-specific installation of one of his vivid and colorful Dreamspace V, the unthinkable occurred and two people died. The large, interactive, walk-through sculpture tore free of its moorings and flew into the air with 30 people inside of it. The artist witnessed the accident and vowed to never create works on that scale again.
