ADDITIONAL NOTES:

part of the reason we came to London was to catch Olafur Eliasson's The Weather Project at the Tate Modern. the exhibition closes sunday 21 march.

images like those at slower.net and lightningfield were stunning glimpses into a stark 1970s scifi space that i wanted to see in person. but i didn't really get the project until i walked into the warmly-lit hall from out of the cold blue london weather. no wonder people were picnicking and hanging out... it was a compelling point of contrast.

In this installation, The Weather Project, representations of the sun and sky dominate the expanse of the Turbine Hall. A fine mist permeates the space, as if creeping in from the environment outside. Throughout the day, the mist accumulates into faint, cloud-like formations, before dissipating across the space.

A glance overhead, to see where the mist might escape, reveals that the ceiling of the Turbine Hall has disappeared, replaced by a reflection of the space below. At the far end of the hall is a giant semi-circular form made up of hundreds of mono-frequency lamps. The arc repeated in the mirror overhead produces a sphere of dazzling radiance linking the real space with the reflection.

I'm so envious because I couldn't make it to London before this exhibition ends. Lucky you.

I'm sure it was amazing to be there, but your photographs are fantastically eerie. Like the end of the world.

i'm guessing you're thinking of the lovely ms. heather's interview in O magazine, which features the mirror project, which linked to this entry today...

thx, mirror project!

These images are surreal...it's like looking off into a far distant land or images you see in anime. I especially like the 3rd pic. from last. Hope you two are having fun there!

These are perhaps some of the most beautiful images I've seen in a long time.

Nice pictures ... some weeks ago the sky in austria/tirol turned red/organe just like in this exhibition it was caused by sand from the sahara. Check here!

Beautiful pictures though nothing can really recreate or describe what it was like actually being there. I was just recently in London for 2 weeks and went to Tate within my last couple days. I wish I had gone sooner so I would've experienced this project much earlier in my trip and had the chance to visit it a couple more times.
