OLAFUR ELIASSON at the MOMA: I only see things when they move

I captured these images from OLAFUR ELIASSON's "I only see things when they move" which is part of an exhibit at the MOMA called "Take Your Time". The exhibit runs from April 20 through June 30.

From MOMA website:
"Bright light shines through rotating color-effect filter glass panels, creating shifting prismatic bands of colours on the surrounding walls."

TAKE YOUR TIME: Olafur Eliasson is the first comprehensive survey in the United States of works by Olafur Eliasson, whose immersive environments, sculptures, and photographs elegantly recreate the extremes of landscape and atmosphere in his native Scandinavia, while foregrounding the sensory experience of the work itself. Drawn from collections worldwide, the presentation spans over fifteen years of Eliasson's career. His constructions, at once eccentric and highly geometric, use multicolored washes, focused projections of light, mirrors, and elements such as water, stone, and moss to shift the viewer's perception of place and self. By transforming the gallery into a hybrid space of nature and culture, Eliasson prompts an intensive engagement with the world and offers a fresh consideration of everyday life.
