Olafur Eliasson - Installation Artist
OMG I can't believe there isn't a thread on him. He is AMAZING.

Heres a little info from wikipedia:

Quote:
Olafur Eliasson (born 1967 in Copenhagen, Denmark) is a Danish-Icelandic artist, noted for his exhibition The Weather Project at the Tate Modern, London, in 2003. That same year, he also represented Denmark at the Venice Biennale.

"Your Black Horizon"


olafureliasson.com

Some information about it:

Quote:

Inside, the pavilion is a “black box” – a dark background for the artificial 360 horizon of light that flows without interruption around the perimeter of the space. As the light changes color reflecting the natural color of daylight while it metamorphoses from dawn to dusk, it creates aninner landscape of contemplation, activating the visitors’ memory of the natural horizon. Upon exiting the pavilion the visitors can draw their own “black horizon” line which is embedded on their retina for a few more seconds, onto the horizon line that stretches between the neighboring islands of Sipan and Mlijet, thus for a few moments becoming an integral part of the work itself.This personal experience is simple and playful, and creates the accessibility that contemporary art needs to find with its potential audience.

i love that sun in the middle the most.. really interesting works

do you think these are permanent displays .. site-specific works
or temporary ones in a gallery?

it's nice when you see an art work that's really supposed to be part of its surroundings
though we have some sculptures at the art department at our school, and they blend so well, sometimes you don't even know if what you're looking at is an art piece...

"The Weather Project" (the sun) was temporary, at Tate Modern in London. It was truly amazing.

I absolutely love Olafur Eliasson and his installations! If you live in Chicago, go check out his exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art before it's up on September 13:

Hes amazing I went to his exhibit 3 times I loved it so much. Also this is funny but he gives me some inspiring interior decorating ideas I actually looked into getting some monochromatic yellow bulbs to but down my hallway to make everything turn black and white (well more black and yellow)
