Unspoken Spaces explores Eliasson’s driving interest in finding visionary shapes to represent abstract ideas. It is a richly illustrated journey through spheres, tunnels, towers, walkways and archways, as well as pavilions and larger buildings realised by Eliasson and his studio since the late 1990s.
Binding the spiralling dynamic of these works are essays by renowned writers across a variety of fields—from geologists and historians of art and science to architects, artists and philosophers.
The works range from small-scale experiments to large-scale projects in the public realm, each work is presented through in-depth project descriptions accompanied by Eliasson’s own words.
Produced in close collaboration with the artist and his studio, this elaborate volume will appeal to art lovers, designers, students and collectors alike.
