The cubic structural evolution

source: qagomaqldgovau

Olafur Eliasson was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1967, where he studied at the Danish Academy of Art from 1989 to 1995. He retains a strong connection to Iceland, his parents’ homeland, whose dramatic landscape and climate has been an important source of inspiration.

Central to Eliasson’s work is a consideration of how we perceive and experience the world. Often he fabricates natural looking phenomena (such as sunlight, flowing water or mist) in man-made environments such as an art gallery. These fabricated phenomena directly engage his audience’s senses and prompt reflections on how we experience things. Eliasson has described this effect as the ability ‘to see yourself seeing’.

The cubic structural evolution project 2004 is a participatory art work in which viewers contribute to the construction of a Lego world. It is a work in which Eliasson encourages a very direct level of engagement. Viewers are able to actively guide their experience of the work as it organically takes shape over the duration of its installation.

Olafur Eliasson (b 1967 Copenhagen, Denmark), is known for works in which immaterial sensations such as temperature, light and air become sculptural elements which viewers experience. He seeks to actively engage audiences in the physical nature of a work or installation rather than the conventional visual encounter. The cubic structural evolution project2004 is an interactive work in which the audience participates in the construction of a cityscape using white Lego blocks.

‘My works in general discuss the notion of a reality being constructed, that ideas such as ‘nature’ or ‘science’ are models for how we perceive reality. So the notions of ‘construction’ and ‘models’ are very present in all my work. I have always put an effort into exposing the way my work has been constructed, so as to suggest that there are not any universal values connected to human experience. Actually I would argue that there is no ‘nature’ but only ‘culture’ and that as we experience so called ‘nature’ we also cultivate or constitute it.’ Olafur Eliasson.

Olafur é dinamarquês e islandes e nasceu em 1967. Ganhou prestígio internacional graças aos seus estudos sobre a percepção e a relação entre a obra e o espectador.

Instalações que exploram a relação entre iluminção e cor, escultura e iluminação, fenômenos visuais, físicos e atmosféricos, que recriam figuras em constante movimento.

A exposição conta com um espaco interativo onde o espactador pode montar sua obra que fica exposta numa mesa.

Olafur faz um espetacular exercício de ilusão de ótica, com seu trabalho único que envolve uma sofisticada elaboração científica, conhecimento de engenharia, e construção de obras mecânicas que se movem e criam efeitos de calesdoscópio em movimento. O artista supera em muito o que se faz atualmente nas artes plásticas, onde quase qualquer coisa passou a ser considerada Arte. Sem nenhum texto para explicar sua obra, Olafur cria um verdadeiro show para o espectador que assiste e tira suas próprias conclusões e experimenta diferentes sensações.
