Images of Olafur Eliasson, Your eye activity field

  • Many tall and narrow canvases, each painted in a distinct shade of the color spectrum appear side by side, stretching around the corners of the white walls of the MCA's lobby.
  • Many tall, narrow, closely hung canvases span two walls that meet at a corner; each canvas is painted a different color, and together they evoke a color spectrum of purples, blues, greens, and yellows.
