Olafur Eliasson at the Tate, smoke and mirrors

Weather Project
Crap camera phone pic for now - will go back to take better ones soon, but I couldn't resist...

Guess who?

So, yes... Went to see The Weather Project at the Tate Modern today... it was very impressive! Enter the Turbine Hall and you'll see a misty, smoky atmosphere with a huge sun in the distance. Look closer and the sun is, in fact, simply a back-lit semi circle reflected in slanted mirrors four stories high. Dozens of people were lying on the ground looking at themselves. We also went to lie down and gaze up at ourselves and everyone else. Smoke and mirrors indeed! Find out more at the official site.

PS: AG, RG is emailing you :)

Love the photos! These taken at the Tate are especially spiffy and wonderfully surreal. I'm happy to say that I found them doing a random search for anything London-related, as I will be traveling there in early March. Thanks for unwittingly adding to my itinerary!
