He is the master monumental atmospheres. For those who did not have the chance to visit ‘Notion Motion’ by the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson in 2005, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen provides another opportunity to see this monumental installation in the museum’s large exhibition spaces. The 1500m2 installation is made up almost entirely of ripples of water reflected in light, in which Eliasson visualizes light waves.
