Weather Project

London, UK | An installation at London's Tate Modern in 2003, in the gallery's famous Turbine Hall.

Danish artist Olafur Eliasson used a semicircular disc, which reflected in the mirrored ceiling to appear circular, made up of hundreds of monochromatic lamps radiating yellow light.

Humidifiers created a fine mist in the air, and visitors could see themselves in the huge ceiling mirror as tiny black shadows.

Displayed for six months, the work attracted two million visitors.
