SHIMURABros contemplate ‘The open pyramid’, 2016, from Eliasson’s solo exibition at the Long Musuem, Shanghai, ‘Emptiness is not nothing at all’, 2016. Reflective panels, mounted on an aluminium frame and suspended from a twenty-metre-high concrete vault ceiling in the museum, formed a large square pyramid that floated two and a half metres above the museum’s floor. A spotlight positioned above the pyramid’s open apex cast a bright circle of light through the pyramid onto the floor below.
