The work of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (born in Copenhagen, 1967) focuses on sensorial perception, the laws of physics and natural phenomena. He works in a variety of media, but is particularly known for his sculptural installations for specific places. His use of light, water, ice and clouds in these spaces is a reflection of his Icelandic roots,and the complexity and diversity of his work have made him a point of reference in the current international art scene. Olafur Eliasson was awarded the Joan Miro Prize in 2007 for his status as one of the leading artists of our times. His work has been shown in major museums around the world. "Light Lab" was at the Portikus centre in Frankfurt and "Take your Time:Olafur Eliasson," a retrospective for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that was later exhibited in the MoMA in New York.
