Primary Description: 
Sculpture, "Space resonates regardless of our presence (Wednesday)". Colorless glass, stainless steel, brass, white paint, LED lamp, cable, ballast; assembled. The central component of sculpture is a ring of beveled colorless glass, which was originally part of a Fresnel lens. An LED, hung from the end of a steel bracket that supports the glass ring, shines light back towards the ring, which acts as a prism and creates concentric bands of light onto a wall.

The Listening Dimension
Tanya Bonakdar Gallery
Tanya Bonakdar Gallery is very pleased to announce its ninth solo exhibition with world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, The listening dimension, on view March 23 through April 22, 2017. Over the past two decades, Eliasson has developed an immensely rich, curious and complex practice at the intersection of aesthetics, science and ecology. In his first solo presentation in New York since 2012, Eliasson will transform the gallery’s exhibition space, across both floors, with a new body of work that explores light, vision and movement, heightening the viewer’s perceptual awareness and encouraging self-reflection. . . .
