Leo Caillard - Art Games (2011)
“Artists have used Apple products to create gorgeous works of art and have featured the devices themselves as pieces of sculpture. There’s even an Apple store at the Louvre museum in Paris.
But what happens when you create a museum layout taking cues from the minimalistic user interface familiar to millions of Apple customers? Caillard has done exactly that with his series of digitally enhanced photographs that re-imagine the Louvre museum.
Caillard’s images show museum patrons interacting with priceless paintings the way someone might browse through slides in a personal iTunes library on a device like an iPhone or MacBook.”
Olafur Eliasson - The Weather Project (2003)
“Representations of the sun and sky dominate the expanse of 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.
At the far end of the hall is a giant semi-circular form made of hundreds of mono-frequency lamps.
Generally used in street lighting, mono-frequency lamps emit light at such a narrow frequency that colors other than yellow and black are invisible, thus transforming the visual field around the sun into a vast duotone landscape.”
