Near future living light, 2020

'Near future living light evokes the experimental cinema of the early twentieth century: colors and shapes appear, develop, and vanish in a slow continuum. This continuously unfolding display arises through collaboration between a spotlight, a wall, and a black box. The black box holds simple objects from my studio – a glass cylinder, lenses, mirrors, differently coloured filters – as they rotate and move. It is from this treasure trove of concrete materials that these transient and immaterial forms emerge and become present to our senses. The artwork’s silent, slowly shifting atmosphere suggests a view from outer space.'

—— Olafur Eliasson
