Holding hands with the sun

Through a general introduction to his wide-ranging work, Olafur Eliasson addressed the question of where an idea begins and the process of an idea becoming embodied in the world. For Eliasson, art is a reality machine. Creativity is not located in the artist’s choice of an individual color; it has to do with the extent to which the artist succeeds in being in sync with the world in making this choice. Creativity is the passage by which the choice becomes ethical and political.
