About

Olafur Eliasson’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world.

Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.

The beauty of infinite repetition is captured in the work Visual mediation, a wall-mounted sculptural work in which a circular arrangement of eighty solid glass spheres – some clear, some covered to different degrees on their inner surface by a coating of reflective silver – produce multiple simultaneous reflections of the viewers and their surroundings that amplify every movement.
