I was intrigued by the Green Light Workshop presented at the 2017 Venice Art Biennale. Although the final object is already delineated by elisson’s instructions, the process of working with materials in a group setting has its own form of creativity.

“olafur eliasson brings his green light workshop to the venice art biennale 2017. first presented at TBA21 in vienna last year, the artistic workshop responds to challenges arising from mass displacement and migration, shinning a light for asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants. participants are taught to fabricate green light lamps designed by eliasson, and take part in a wider educational program of creativity and shared learning.”
