Olafur Eliasson (Copenhagen, 1967) is the artist who brought the sun to the Tate Modern in London. The Weather Project (2003), with its artificial light, illuminated the space and the spectators in the museum’s Turbine Hall. In 2008, concurrently with the installation of his first major retrospective at San Francisco’s MoMA and P.S.1 in New York, the artist produced his spectacular project, The New York City Waterfalls, four impressive waterfalls in different sites in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The film is an introduction to the poetics and content of his work, a behind-the-scenes look at four years of Eliasson’s professional and family life in the United States, and also follows the various phases of the work’s preparation, in the creative forge of his studio in Berlin and among Iceland’s glaciers, where the artist is shown working on the first exposures for his photographic series The Glacier Mill.
