Quote about Olafur Eliasson: When museums are left with so little money that their future is in the hands of private donors, then they are unable to develop their own signatures by collecting themselves.

Olafur Eliasson Sayings: I think an artist has the potential to investigate both form and content within one activity, to show that there can be coherence between form and values in our society, as in thinking about a city and building one.

Olafur Eliasson Saying: I can use the camera to make a place or landscape; the camera to a greater extent projects rather than takes in or reproduces.
