The future is curved

2014

Abstract

The internationally renowned Danish‐Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is well known for his large‐scale installations that foreground the importance of embodied space by using elemental materials such as light, water and air temperature to create immersive experiences for viewers. This was most conspicuously showcased at Tate Modern in London by The Weather Project (2003), which placed a glowing sun in the Turbine Hall to dramatic effect. Here, two of Eliasson's projects are featured ‐ Your rainbow panorama and Movement microscope ‐ that continue the artist's investigations into ‘unlearning space’ by exploring how space is perceived and created through the presence and movement of the human body.
