'Your black horizon'

Your_black_horizon_installation_by_olafu

The installation above, by the Danish–Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, is part of his work as it appears on an island in the Lagoon outside Venice, where it is part of the 51st Biennial.

The complete piece consists of a pavilion, with views onto the water and ramps leading into a blackened room with a thin beam of light acting as a horizon line, a full 360° circumferentially, its intensity and color slowly shifting.

The light is that of a Venetian spring day condensed into 14 minutes.
