Olafur Eliasson’s trip to the Scholar’s Gardens of Suzhou with Hu Fang. Life Is Space, 2011: 11.45–12.30 Morning session II, 2011
Eliasson and Hu Fang talk about their trip with Steen Koerner and others to the Master of Nets garden in Suzhou, China, during the ‘Life Is Space’ symposium held at Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin in 2011. ‘Life Is Space’ – a successor to the day-long ‘Life in Space’ events held in 2006, 2007, and 2008 – brought scientists, artists, scholars, dancers, theorists, spatial practitioners, and movement experts together with students at the Institut für Raumexperimente and the studio team to share, discuss, present, and experiment. These meetings were only loosely planned in advance and were largely left to intuition and serendipity.
