Ólafur Elíasson’s large-scale installations often confront us with nature-inspired elemental visions, and as a visitor, it is easy to become immersed in the atmosphere of the spaces he designs—this is no different with his latest work, presented in South Korea.
The Danish-Icelandic artist’s new exhibition, The Living Observatory, in which geometric shapes and colors dominate the space, opened at The Art Space 193. The three rooms of the exhibition lead the visitor from magenta to bright yellow, and then all the colors of the rainbow become concentrated on the glass wall of the geodesic dome. To define the color shades, Elíasson used the CMYK palette, and to create visual illusions, he used the techniques of camera obscura, trompe l’oeil and anamorphosis.
