The Weather Project

The Weather Project, representations of the sun and sky dominate the expanse of the Turbine Hall. A fine mist permeates the space, as if creeping in from the environment outside. Throughout the day, the mist accumulates into faint, cloud-like formations, before dissipating across the space. Olafur Eliasson takes this ubiquitous subject as the basis for exploring ideas about experience, mediation and representation.

  1. This project reminds me of the time when I was on exchange in Sweden and experienced winter for the first time. I didn’t know that the sun sets as early as 2.30pm in the noon!

  2. It’s really weird how the weather turns on our mood. After almost five years in Luleå, far up in northern Sweden, I can now say that I honestly get why people fall into depression och hibernates during the darkest months. When it comes to human well-being, wonder what the ideal climate is? Doubt it’s the one we experience here in Singapore;) However, a playful and interesting project!
