Studio Olafur Eliasson studioolafureliasson


Reality projector soundscape - Olafur recorded the sounds of a piano as it arrived and was set up at the studio and as he experimented on it with found objects. This audio library was sent to the musician and sound artist Jónsi, who selected, mixed, and arranged the material in dialogue with Olafur into an ambient soundscape to accompany the artwork Reality projector. Opens March 1 @marcianoartfoundation

“Over centuries we’ve schooled ourselves in taking multiple perspectives through criticism and self-criticism. If the training takes, we are intellectually supple, trained not only by analytical argumentation but also by imaginative literature and lms to envision the world with di erent eyes. We need an analogous suppleness for timescales, from the nanosecond to the eon and everything in between.” Time (and time again) a conversation with historian of science Lorraine Daston.

The trees that sail to sea - Fascinating long read on #driftwood on (excerpt) "Dead trees were sailing the seas long before our ancestors conceived of the ax or skiff, long before the continents split and went their separate ways. Driftwood makes an enormous if underappreciated contribution to the food web connecting the forests and the sea. From streams to estuaries to the deep ocean floor, driftwood shapes every environment it passes through. While there’s an awareness that temperate rainforests are enriched with nitrogen from the marine environment, delivered by decomposing salmon, less well known is the fact that dead trees from those same forests travel to the sea and become a vital source of food and habitat. Long before driftwood caught the eye of environmental scientists, Arctic people had a primordial relationship with the wood arriving from a forested world they could scarcely imagine. They transformed this precious resource into everything from shelter and weapons to carved, tactile maps that could be read by hand. So valuable was this gift from the sea, archaeologists have speculated that when Inuit ancestors migrated from Alaska to the east over 1,000 years ago, they carried driftwood with them.” This video is from Quadra Island, British Colombia by Angeleen Olsen @hakaimag

"I’m convinced the so-called culture sector in our society is more likely to create change than the public sector, the politicians, or the private sector. Because the private sector is driven by profitability primarily. And currently, the public sector is corrupted by populism. That leaves the cultural sector, which is very close to the civic sector. It enjoys the fact that it has a lot of civic trust and loyalty. That means people kind of trust the culture sector, also because it reflects people’s emotional needs. When people engage in the cultural sector they see themselves being reflected. This means the cultural sector is about the people. It’s not about profitability or egoism. I also think the culture sector successfully combines being emotional with being rational. The private sector is only about profitability and rationalism, McKinsey-fication of the world. And the public sector is only about populism, which is over-emotional, like Trump. It has no data, no science, it’s completely irrational. It’s just emotional. Culture actually has a commitment to academia, to history, to identity, to psychology. The culture sector is both emotional and rational. Little Sun – which I, as an artist actually did together with a scientist, a solar engineer – is in a way, the emotional holding hands with the rational. And it’s about showing that the culture sector has tools to change the world." Interview in @dazed about cultural agency and solar power! @littlesunenergy
