'I'm very excited to bring my longtime interest in geometry and light into this collaboration with Louis Poulsen to create the OE Quasi Light. What distinguishes it from so many lamps is that it shines in towards the core, from which the light is reflected back out onto the surroundings. In one form, the lamp combines precision in design with quality atmospheric lighting.' – Olafur Eliasson

Kapwani Kiwanga’s piece ‘Glow’ is really powerful - based on colonial-era ‘lantern laws’, when any slave was required to carry a candle whenever they were outside after dark, as a form of surveillance to keep them visible. @mitlistarts

Tidal Museum, designed by our collaborators Studio Other Spaces, is a proposal for a new art museum on the west coast of Denmark, which would be situated between the dunes and the sea. It uses the movement of the tides to shape both the boundaries of the museum and the spaces within it. High tide floods some of the spaces, while at low tide the museum expands into the landscape. Visitors experience a highly flexible building that continually changes depending on the weather, time of day, season, and level of the sea. Visit Studio Other Spaces for more information.

How can art help us imagine our future world? This light-installation by artists Timo Aho and Pekka Niittyvirta uses sensors that interact with the rising tidal changes, activating on high tide - providing a visual reference of future sea level rise
