I’m extremely honoured to become a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador. Urgent climate action is needed and the best roadmap for our activities is the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As an artist, I believe that culture offers access to and a felt understanding of the challenges at hand, and I look forward to joining the United Nations Development Programme in working towards these goals

New season of Netflix's show Abstract premieres on 25 September

Live from SOE is a series of livestream episodes, conceived for Olafur’s exhibition 'In real life' at Tate Modern. Streaming every other week for 30 minutes directly from the studio, this is a chance to give our audience a view into our everyday life and what it means to make artworks, exhibitions, commissions, and works in public space with Olafur. Our second episode – titled 'Advanced geometry‘ – looked at how we work with geometry research and model-making, and how this research is eventually turned into artworks.

This video is an excerpt from the full-length episode - you can watch it on soe.tv

These Clelia curves are obtained by two simultaneous rotations: a point on a sphere’s meridian rotates at a constant speed, while, at the same time, the sphere itself is also rotating at a constant speed around its axis.

The exact feeling that an artwork creates is less important to Olafur than encouraging reflection on that feeling. An artwork, ideally, should counteract the numbness of information overload and create what Olafur calls a 'felt feeling'. @blackcitru5 twitter.com/blackcitru5/st…
