"Projects 73: Olafur Eliasson - Seeing yourself sensing"
2001-09-13 until 2002-05-21
Museum of Modern Art
New York, NY,
Olafur Eliasson's installation, conceived for the windows in MoMA's Garden
Hall, investigates sensory perception in relationship to architecture, more
specifically the dialogue between inside and outside. It also addresses the
shifting nature of the Museum, which is currently undergoing major renovation
Fifty sheets of striped transparent and mirrored glass extend
over the first and second floors, creating a mesmerizing visual experience.
Seeing yourself sensing probes the notion of seeing as a phenomenological
process and an action realized in time.
Organized by Roxana Marcoci, Janice H. Levin Fellow/Curatorial Assistant, Department of
Painting and Sculpture, and Claudia Schmuckli, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Chief Curator
Seeing yourself sensing. 2001.
