Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967) is a Danish-Icelandic artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature to create unique experiences for spectators. His diverse works, which include sculptures, paintings, and installations, are exhibited worldwide and not just confined to museum and gallery spaces.
In 1995, Eliasson founded Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin and has since realised a number of major exhibitions and projects internationally. He is well known for popular, monumental works such as The weather project, installed at the Tate Modern in 2003 as part of the Unilever series, in which he artificially created a sun rising in the Tate's Turbine Hall, and The New York City Waterfalls, four huge man made waterfalls in New York Harbour.
