Post Anthropocentric practices

Provocation 4 -Walking in surfaces and within mediums

This lecture focused on the human realm and the practice of walking and drawing. Olafur Eliasson aims to capture the movements of the non-anthropocentric world in his work. ‘Connecting Cross country with a line’ (2013) uses the movement of the tram to facilitate an ink drawing.

In another work entitles ‘Sea between Greenland and Iceland’ (1999) the artist again explores the representation of movement through drawing. Eliasson produced this art work with his father, who was a sailor as well as an artist. The pens were hung from string attached to the ceiling and the drawing was allowed to create itself.
