The next work I’d like to examine in my series on the convergence of fine art and architecture, is one that has been quite prominent in the media and I’m sure many of you have seen pictures.

Having originated at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Eliasson’s retrospective is now headed to Moma. And if anyone is in the area, I have a feeling it will definitely be worth the trip (and the hefty cover charge). Eliasson’s curiosity about space and environment has led much of his work to take on architectural and interior design components. In fact, on numerous occasions, he has collaborated with architect Kjetil Thorsen (co-founder of Snohetta) on projects such as the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 and the New National Opera House in Oslo.
