Realised today that I’m totally missing a trick and have this DoUpDiary building site malarkey completely wrong. What was I thinking? It’s not a negative, soul destroying mud field, it’s a potential gold mine! Artist Olafur Eliasson has just opened Riverbed at the Denmark’s Louisiana Museam of Modern Art and I quote
A surface of rocks canvasses the floors, creating a terrain for a stream of water winding through the interior. The piece places an alternative path to the one already anticipated by the architecture: visitors are transported from the typical walk across a tile floor, to steps on top of loose terrain, and finally a course along a river.
Above is a shot of Riverbed and a shot of Moregeous Mansions. I challenge you to tell them apart eh? Eh? I’ll be charging an entrance fee of just £5 per head from Monday, with coffee and pastries a delicious extra. Right here in Manchester, our very own interactive aesthetic loose terrain experience. Olafur, I tip my builder’s hardhat to you, top idea x
I know you’ll *obviously* be here first thing Monday morning for the real deal, but if you’d like to see more of the Danish artwork, here’s the link: http://www.designboom.com/art/olafur-eliasson-riverbed-louisiana-museum-of-modern-art-19-08-2014/
