Moiré effect is a cycle of guided tours conducted by a museum educator and a physicist probing the work of Olafur Eliasson from the dual perspective of art and science.
Optical effects, refractory phenomena and interference with our vision all play a crucial role in the exhibition that the artist has devised for Palazzo Strozzi – a pathway in which artificial light, fleeting shadows, reflections and moiré effects interact with the Renaissance building to change not only its aspect but also our perception of that aspect.
Olafur Eliasson’s artistic practice embraces the world of architecture, science and technique, developing experimental investigation with the support of experts from a variety of different disciplines.
The cycle of tours is designed to expand visitors’ knowledge of the artist’s work from an interdisciplinary viewpoint that conjugates art with science.
The project has been devised as part of the Palazzo Strozzi Future Art programme developed with the support of the Fondazione Hillary Merkus Recordati and in conjunction with the Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia, Istituto Nazionale di Ottica (CNR-INO) and the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy (LENS).
