The client requested a design that would have a façade expression differentiated from the surrounding buildings, and that would be a part of future tenants’ branding.
We aimed at a design with a soft expression that would be favorably accepted by passersby, while standing out from the surrounding buildings that tended to have physically hard expressions.

Therefore we created the largest physical graphic identity the world has ever seen, a gigantic physical art installation measuring 13×8 meters, enabling the visitors to interact, climb and jump on it. To produce the identity we used 10 000 nails, 175 litres of paint, 280 plywood sheets, 14 people during 900 hours, and we rented a skylift to photograph it 30 meters up in the air." - Snask  photo malmofestivalen-2014_photoshoot_skylift_07_zpsed6de7ab.jpg  photo malmofestivalen-2014_photoshoot_skylift_12_zps621646b7.jpg  photo malmofestivalen-2014_buildup-in-the-city_02_zpsd216a834.jpg

Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.  photo Olafur-Eliasson-Riverbed-2014-via-Lousisiana-Museum-of-Modern-Art-1_zps2ae6997f.jpg  photo IMG_MDA115567_1600px_zpsa325e806.jpg

From there, an obsession is born: photographically staging these flashes. I've deduced that these images are excerpts from my dreams. My work is mainly based on the intimacy and emotions. I stage the body and the relationship we can have with it." - Manon Weiser  photo 24_img1389_zps8aaca7aa.jpg  photo 24_img1133_zps300e4af5.jpg
