This book is a splendid and unprecedented comprehensive survey of Olafur Eliasson's light and mirror installations from 1990 to the present. The Danish-Icelandic artist focuses on the factors that influence human perception in the age of technology. In an era in which our relationship to the world around us is shaped by the mediatisation of human perception and our awareness of fundamental environmental loss, the juxtaposition of the natural and the artificial in Eliasson's art compels us to reassess our notions about the authentic experience of nature.

Featuring an index of the 138 light and mirror installations completed between 1990 and 2004, this well illustrated volume describes all of the essential aspects of this work.
