One of my favorite installations that I’ve experienced is Blind Light by Antony Gormley. The feeling is quite hard to describe, but you had to be there. Disorientating, claustrophobic, exciting, playful, wet, confusing. All from a glass box filled with fog. Forget all this digital stuff.
So, when I saw this on Designboom (where I borrowed these pics from), I wished I was in Beijing to experience it.
Feelings are facts is an installation by Olafur Eliasson & Ma Yansong, at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA), Beijing, “which challenges our everyday patterns of spatial orientation. vision functions as our primary default sense for navigation, but within this installation, insecurity is induced on visitors initially, reducing visibility, suggesting the need to invent new models for perception.”
