Solar wind sail (blue), 2018

optical illusion



Solar wind sail (blue) consists of three mosaic panels, each comprising myriad panes of silvered hand-blown glass in a range of subtle hues. These panels appear to depict the same complexly variegated disc as viewed from a succession of three different angles, a kind of frozen cinema like that seen in Eliasson’s early watercolours and an ongoing exploration in his glass mosaics.
