Olifur's Fan

I saw this piece installed at Chicago’s MCA over the summer. The piece hits on quite a few things that I really like in art work. The essence of the material informs the content of the piece. Air is used in a powerful and interesting way. There is also a nice balance of simplicity, delicacy and a hint of violence. There are elements of this train of thought in my pieces Fly on a String & Burnt (see below).
