see yourself seeing

In chicago this weekend i saw the Olafur Eliasson show 'take your time' at the MCA.




eliasson makes sculptures that reference scientific study and depend on viewer experience in a way that is really exciting. I love how he uses principles from optical physics to place people in the spaces between science and art, and question the borders between the two realms.

I also found these images on line.





Curated by Alana Celii and Grant Willing
I think these are beautiful, and extremely similar to what i am doing right now.

Where eliasson talks about how we see and experience physically, celii and willing comment on how we see and experience things culturally. I think the two bodies of work really go well together.
