Cristina Albu. The Disavowal of Modernity via the Fusion of Science and Art in Olafur Eliassonís Site-Specific Installations. Natural Selections: Art, Science, and Exchange with the Natural World Symposium, Carnegie Museum of Art, 2006.

Abstract: As the project of modernity is associated with increased faith in technology and institutions, Olafur Eliasson, Danish-Icelandic contemporary artist, undermines its ideals by creating spectacular natural phenomena that disrupt ordinary museum experience. The paper explores the ways in which his ludic installations question universally accepted ideas about science and nature, challenging the boundaries between reality and hyperreality.

Keywords: Olafur Eliasson, modernity, site-specificity, art and science
