Olafur Eliasson 'Verklighetsmaskiner/ Reality Machines'

My first weekend in Stockholm happened to be the last one of Olafur Eliasson's exposition 'Reality machines' at Moderna Museet and ArkDes. So it seemed like a good plan to go to Skepsholmen for a cultural day out.

I wasn't the only one who had that idea. The museum was packed with people. Luckily, I arrived early so obtaining a ticket didn't take that long, and the exhibition spaces were not that crowded yet. By noon; though the entrance hall was so crowded you could hardly pass through anymore, and people were drinking coffee and enjoying cake while waiting in queue just to kill time.

I believe strongly that art can change the world. Art has the power to make us question the way we think and the way we see things. Eliasson's installations are a good example of this. His works make us, as he formulates it, "see our own seeing".
