Lives and works between Paris and Boston

Weather Desktop Project, Installation, digital .jpg wallpaper, screens, computers, 2013
Based on original artwork by Olafur Eliasson, The Weather, 2003

When Olafur Eliasson made the sun get into the Tate Modern in London, Weather Desktop Project gets it onto our computers’ desktop, inviting us to contemplation, as long as needed. The sham is thus reproduced at a far different scale from that of the monumental and the public, rather that of the private and singular relation one has with their computer screen.
“I’m spending more time with my computer than with the sky.
 The screen is both my window on the world and my way to hide from it, and also my social representation and my work space. It is my freedom and my alienation. I wake up and fall asleep with it. It is my light, my sun.”
