Abstract: The Design of Art

Olafur Eliasson

Overview

Referred to as an artist, architect, designer, and phenom by his colleagues, Olafur Eliasson established a studio in Berlin to deepen the relationship between art and spatial analysis. He now exhibits worldwide and represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale, one of the most prestigious exhibitions in the world. Collaborating with architects, scientists, and other artists, Eliasson is at the forefront of contemporary artistic thought.

In this episode of Netflix docuseries Abstract: The Art of Design, Eliasson takes a theoretical approach to visual art. As he walks us through his artistic process, Eliasson explains how thinking like an artist can improve your critical facilities. Eliasson’s 3D installations are engaged with the natural world, the history of architecture and geometry, and the social and environmental issues that face the world’s current population.

Though the theories of ephemeral visual art can be difficult to understand, Eliasson’s studied narration and focused presence make his exploration of visual art and theory digestible and soothing.
