  • Catalogue Essay


    “My primary interest comes from investigations into how the eye functions and how one can use color to explore the difference is what wee see. Our experience of color, light and darkness is of course not a purely biological matter – it also depends on how our vision has been cultivated… That discrepancy is interesting because it contests the idea of rationalized vision that’s sill predominant today; a way of seeing that has ruled out the notion of difference.” (Olafur Eliasson taken from an interview with Philip Ursprung in O. Eliasson, ed., Studio Olafur Eliasson: An Encyclopedia, Cologne, 2008, p. 93)
    In the present lot, Holo Lamp, a circular mirror reflects light from a bulb onto a vertically mounted holographic glass disc. This divides the light into colors of the spectral range. Viewed at eye level, the glass disc is blue; when viewed from above or below, its color changes to others in the spectrum.
