Life in Space III

Olafur Eliasson held three Life In Space (LIS) symposia, one in 2006, 2007 and 2008. In these, he invited artists, architects, collaborators and people working in areas which have informed his work such as the natural and social sciences to his studio to discuss ideas around light, space and perception. LIS in 2008 was filmed and the edited version is available to watch on his website. I have been working my way through it for the past few days. I think the idea is that questions are raised and theories put forward. Some of the language is thoroughly impenetrable, words are created and also mispronounced, but don’t let this put you off, it is definitely worth a look. Also look out for Steen Kørner (pictured above) and his dancing -he provides some strange, slightly light-hearted relief with his moon walks and improbable hand movements.
