Ambitious in scale but materially elemental and ephemeral, Olafur Eliasson's installations, sculptures, and photographs call for nothing less than a full transformation of our understanding of the art experience. In this talk with one of today's most ambitious and influential artists, Eliasson discusses past projects, collaboration, and his studio and the exhibition as sites of production, among other aspects of his work.

The talk is presented on the final days of the installation of Take your time: Olafur Eliasson.
