If you can't make it to NYC by June 30th - check out the online exhibition
or even just the intro video
Back in October last year, Sam and I had the chance to go up to SF to visit some friends and trek around the city.
Our hotel was right next to the MOMA - we caught this amazing exhibition by Olafur Eliasson that's now made its way to NY's MoMA. Aside from the crazy and wild car ride by our dear friend Elaine, this was definitely a highlight of our trip.
Here is an excerpt about the artist from SFMOMA:
Widely heralded as one of the most important artists of his generation, Olafur Eliasson nimbly merges art, science, and natural phenomena to create extraordinary multisensory experiences. Challenging the passive nature of traditional art-viewing, he engages the observer as an active participant, using tangible elements such as temperature, moisture, aroma, and light to generate physical sensations. Encompassing sculpture, photography, and large-scale immersive installations — including a newly commissioned kaleidoscopic tunnel that envelops the Museum's steel truss bridge — these groundbreaking projects are intentionally simple in construction but thrilling to behold, sparking profound, visceral reactions designed to heighten one's experience of the everyday.
