MAIN STAGE: Olafur Eliasson, Artist

Virtual Reality, Art and Technology, Public sphere, Intervention,

We are honored to welcome Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson as the opening speaker at Techfestival.

Olafur Eliasson’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.

In his opening talk, Olafur will focus on the intersection between art and modern technology.
