Your mindful meteorite, 2013
Hans Ulrich Obrist
seeing yourself sensing
touch, act, react
For 'Do It' at Manchester International Festival, Eliasson invited viewers to hold a small meteorite while looking at their fading reflection in a partially-silvered mirror. In the accompanying text, Eliasson points out to viewers that this is the first time they have ever held something from another planet. 'Your imagination of the meteorite's trajectory - from outer space into this world and into your hand - makes it touching to hold in your hand', the message reads.
'The longer you hold it, the more incredible it becomes. Pause.'
