  • PANORAMIC AWARENESS PAVILION Olafur Eliasson

    Des Moines, Iowa, USA

     

    Danish born, world famous artist Olafur Eliasson’s work exhibited at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park in the city of Des Moines is composed of 23 glass panels arranged in a circle around a beam of light.

    At the center of each semi-transparent panel stands a transparent, colored area. The sculpture becomes a self-reflexive meditation chamber for the viewers who step inside and a landscape compass for those viewers outside, allowing them to  understand their own position and direction of movement thanks to the color transitions.
