So I am finally able to post to the site…

1: Post Something Interesting

Inspiration:

Installation artist Olafur Eliasson does work that explores the relationship between nature and technology through rebuilding fragments of the environment in the gallery.

“His materials are elemental and ephemeral: light, heat, moisture, steam, and ice are manipulated by the artist towards aesthetic ends and in response to a specific site. His work navigates a space between nature and technology, the organic and the industrial. For Eliasson, immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves become sculptural elements when presented in an art context.”

Some examples:
