The aerial river series, 2000

The aerial river series

“…he is following one river from a plane; start at the lower right with its source in the mountains, then move right to going upwards; the river runs into the ocean at the upper left. His photo series came as a wonderful surprise to me: I love their tight geometric installation, all in one huge gallery around the giant silver star.”

    With the cave series (fascinating–like out-takes from a colonoscopy!), the river series was the most compelling of Eliasson’s great, primal photo sets of barren Icelandic landscapes. You have to read the catalogue (or brochure) to realize that he is following one river from a plane; start at the lower right with its source in the mountains, then move right to going upwards; the river runs into the ocean at the upper left. His photo series came as a wonderful surprise to me: I love their tight geometric installation, all in one huge gallery around the giant silver star.

    Olafur’s glaciated BMW hydrogen car was great social commentary at the edge

    The 7 spot lights exploring perspective through various mask exhibits was fascinating, it reminded me of games I wrote in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Could be very interesting to rotate colors in order to heighten the emotional impact or even give the illusion of movement. Fascinating to see this in an analog medium.
