perception of our surroundings

by olafur eliasson: surrounded by dense fog, visitors use senses other than the sight to navigate the path. 

Eliasson personally describes his works as “experiments.” The artist employs light, colour and natural phenomena like fog and waves to test how physical movement and the interaction of body and brain influence our perception of our surroundings. A central idea is to get us, the viewers or users of his works, to examine the conditions of our perceptions through individual experience, enabling us to reassess our concepts of what it means to be and act in the world.
