Embodied Creation and Perception in Olafur Eliasson’s and Carsten Höller’s Projects

Else Marie Bukdahl
This paper examines the relationship between somaesthetics and several art projects by Olafur Eliasson and Carsten Höller. Involving an embodied, perceptual, and interactive dialogue between artist, viewer, and the environmental surroundings, these artworks aim not only to enhance our aesthetic experience and to increase our awareness of the body in space and in action, but also, through their artistic means of enhancing embodied and environmental awareness, to benefit life more generally.
