A visual exploration of Olafur Eliasson’s large-scale interactive installation, "The uncertain museum" at Duke University's Nasher Museum of Art. Eliasson’s work explores the relationship between spectator and object. "When preserving the freedom of each person to experience something that may differ from the experience of others, art will be able to have a significant impact on both the individual and society," said Eliasson. The installation is part of the museum's permanent collection and will be on display until September 30, 2012.
