Olafur Eliasson’s LED Orbs and Spencer Finch’s Fluorescent Tubes Showcased at Art Basel

Art Basel in Switzerland is arguably the epicenter of the contemporary art scene. As technology creeps in amidst more traditional mediums, illumination has taken the limelight. Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson showcased an LED orb similar to last year’s and American Spencer Finch created a colorful modern twist on 60s modernist lighting with colorful fluorescent tube lighting.

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is best known for his elemental use of basic materials to enhance his large-scale sculptures and installations. For Basel he presented “Your Two-Tone Dawn Light”, a hanging sculpture made of colored glass and LED lights encased in an aluminum and steel skeleton.
