Over the past two decades, Olafur Eliasson has regularly traveled to Iceland to photograph the island's landscape and natural phenomena. This ambitious, on-going venture – almost cartographical in its scope – has resulted in approximately eighty photo series to date and a plethora of individual photographs of glaciers, waterfalls, rainbows, sunrises, volcanoes, and geysers.
Far from only documenting the world, in Your Moving Landscape Eliasson's vibrant images reflect on our relationship to nature and our physical existence within space. An artwork in its own right, Your Moving Landscape presents Eliasson's highly personal selection of full-color images from his immense body of work, granting the reader a rare peek into a significant source of inspiration for much of the artist's work in other media – the Icelandic landscape.
Olafur Eliasson, born 1967, is one of the most renowned contemporary artists. He is based in Berlin where he has established Studio Olafur Eliasson, a laboratory for spatial research. In his works he explores the relationship between individuals and their surroundings.
