A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
Sunday was cool and overcast so instead of heading to the beach as planned, we visited the Olafur Eliasson exhibition Take Your Time at the MCA instead. I’ve seen some of Eliasson’s work before at the Tate Modern in London and found it very moving (particularly the artificial sun installed in the Tate’s turbine hall in the middle of winter). Playing with light and depth, it’s a really potent example of how colour and shadow so affects our mood and perception – at least, that’s what I got from it.
My three favourite installations were the ‘Room for One Colour’ (above), ’360-degree Room for All Colours’ (a round light installation which constantly changes to cover the full colour spectrum) and the prismatic ‘One-Way Colour Tunnel’. Go see it if you can – it’s mesmerizing.
