As part of Sydney Festival, Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has an exhibition at the MCA from December 10 2009 – April 11 2010. The exhibit is called Take Your Time: Olafur Eliasson and will comprise of a diverse range of projects including installations, large-scale immersive environments, freestanding sculpture, and phogography. The artists work has been described as:

Olafur Eliasson is among the most influential and widely acclaimed artists of his generation.

From light-filled environments to walk-in kaleidoscopes, his unique participatory works offer alluring spaces that harness optical cognition and meteorological elements, examine the intersection of nature and science, and explore the boundary between the organic and the artificial.

Having been raised partly in Iceland, Eliasson’s practice is informed by that country’s primordial landscape and spectacular weather. He recontextualises elements such as light, water, ice, fog, arctic moss, and lava rock to create altogether new circumstances that shift the viewer’s consciousness and sense of place. By extension, his work prompts an intensive engagement with the world outside and a fresh consideration of everyday life.

Looks like this is going to cost you 15 bucks, but should be worth every cent.
