Lot Details

In "The House that Made up its Vision as it Walked," pulses of electricity shoot through the neon tubing that make up this abstract geometric structure. Resting upon a cylindrical aluminum base, the construction of light commands attention as its glowing limbs outline a mesmerizing aura. Like inverted branches, two protrusions of blue neon spirals encapsulate the open body of the octagonal unit. This arresting sculpture illustrates Eliasson’s exploration of light, space, energy, and their effects on one’s perception of an environment.

Produced by Lisa Ivorian Gray for the New Museum.
