Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, this survey tracks Eliasson's artistic practice from its start in the 1990s to the present - including works completed this year. Through hundreds of illustrations bracketed by writings on and by Eliasson, the book provides an unparalleled overview of his remarkably accessible output, from such large-scale interactive experiences as The Weather Project (2003) at Tate Modern to smaller, more delicate works on paper or made of glass, and includes photography, painting, and film.

Olafur Eliasson's Reality Projector installation at the Marciano Art Foundation is a smashing immersive environment guaranteed to elicit an immediate 'Oh, wow' from visitors. --Los Angeles Times Eliasson has a faith in the improving power of art that has been out of fashion since Victorian times. --New York Times Olafur Eliasson injects his work with a universal conscience that catapults art outside of its normal confines and challenges the way we inhabit the world. --The Art Story This monograph by the master of elemental art provides a concise career retrospective to date. From his famous installation The Weather roject (which drew an incredible two million visitors to Tate Modern's Turbine Hall in 2003-04) to equally monumental works including Waterfall which seemed to be suspended in the air above the ornamental lakes at the Palace of Versailles (2016), this book captures Eliasson's scale and vision. But there are also moments of surprising calm and delicacy ? watercolours and works in glass reveal a lightness of touch that take the breath away in other, more subtle ways. Eliasson's multifaceted, confrontation-generating output is the subject of a new and exciting tome by Phaidon... This weighty compendium of essays, interviews and mind-bending colour images spans three decades of innovation and experimentation... Eliasson's real gift for manipulating the viewer's perspective, however lies in his ability to alter not only how a person sees the world around them [...] but also how they see themselves. --Aesthetica An unparalleled overview of [Eliasson's] remarkable output. A journey in texts and especially in images on 440 pages summarizing 30 years of art to experience, to feel, to be within and not... If Experience will be your first step in Eliasson's new alphabet where science meets mankind in a tangible way via arts, you will keep yourself amazed for hours and will find yourself surprisingly read it back frequently.
