Olafur Eliasson

I'm finally getting this up here... its been a busy few weeks. eep!

The whole office went to see the Olafur Eliasson exhibit (Thanks Yakuh!) at the sfmoma and it was everything I'd hoped it would be. Especially since the sfmoma has not had a decent exhibit since the Matthew Barney 'Drawing Restraint'. Hello sfmoma do you hear me? 'Matisse and beyond' is not what I expect from a modern art museum at some point certain works are just not modern anymore.

Okay back to Eliasson...
I love that I can walk into this restrictive building and be transported to a completely different country, climate, perception of space. We all need a little lift out of our too often narrowly viewed environment and Olafur takes you there.

The photos above I took in the main space since of course all other photos are forbidden. If you are in San Francisco Go Go Go! Jeff Wall and Joseph Cornell are also there right now... they make an excellent trio.

yes! hello! i love these photos you took. i also tried to snap a few, it was challenging for sure. i took my preschool class to see the exhibit and it was great to hear their observations. one kid said, "this is the best place i have been in my entire life, why hasn't anyone taken me here before?" haha

Thanks for sharing these photos! I've seen some in magazines, but it is always nice to see installations like these from a user's point of view!
