Olaf Eliasson at MoMA

April 29, 2008

This piece was my favorite… it is the perfect balance between impressive visual effects and simple construction. A bright light reflects off of hanging square mirror. The reflections it casts are illusive and it is surprisingly hard to associate them with the mirror as it rotates from a central point above it. When is it perpendicular to the light, the light’s shadow is cast behind it on the wall, and the viewer can observe the heat distortion about it.
