What is good light? Olafur gives his thoughts on the question in the latest issue of Wallpaper.

Excited that our project proposal ‘Condensation pavilion’, created by Studio Other Spaces, is part of the group exhibition ‘The Nature Rules: Dreaming of Earth Project’, opening tonight at Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo. On view until 28 July.

Studio Other Spaces, as a potential part of the reinvention of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, has designed ‘Common sky’, a sculpture that uses transparent glass and mirror reflections to modulate visitors’ views into the trees of the park. Meanwhile, it generates an ever-changing shadow pattern on the ground. This project would form a new public space connecting the existing Bunshaft Gallery, the surrounding park, and the new master plan and addition designed by OMA

Event horizon in sight? Today we get the first results from the Event Horizon Telecope. Their aim: to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual earth-sized telescope. Press conference is live in 4.5 h: youtube.com/watch?v=Dr20f1…

Today @iSaloniofficial in Milan: I'm launching my new light for @Louispoulsen

'I'm very excited to bring my longtime interest in geometry and light into this collaboration with Louis Poulsen to create the OE Quasi Light. What distinguishes it from so many lamps is that it shines in towards the core, from which the light is reflected back out onto the surroundings. In one form, the lamp combines precision in design with quality atmospheric lighting.' – Olafur Eliasson

Kapwani Kiwanga’s piece ‘Glow’ is really powerful - based on colonial-era ‘lantern laws’, when any slave was required to carry a candle whenever they were outside after dark, as a form of surveillance to keep them visible. @mitlistarts
