Eliasson forefronts the exchange between the actively engaged visitor and her individualized experience of the physical artwork in the space. Described by the artist as “devices for the experience of reality,” his works and projects prompt a greater sense of awareness about the way we engage with and interpret the world. Eliasson’s practice, not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects, interventions in civic space, arts education, policy-making, and issues of sustainability and climate change.
