Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967) is a Danish-Icelandic artist who is known for his work which uses natural materials and occurrences such as sun and light, water and rain or air and wind to enhance viewer’s experiences as well as making a statement about the world in which we live.

For almost 30 years he has explored three particular interests: his concern with nature, honed through his time in Iceland, his research into geometry and his ongoing investigations into how we perceive, feel about and shape the world around us. VBAT's Craig Berry visited the retrospective Olafur Eliasson - In Real Life at Tate Modern. Enjoy the read.
