“It is a kind of reality check of your connectedness to the ground,” Eliasson said in a statement. “You are at once standing firmly on the sand and hanging, head down, from a ground that is far above you. You will probably switch back and forth between a first-person perspective and a destabilizing, third-person point of view of yourself.”While the artwork is noticeably enticing from a distance, the real magic occurs when visitors are under the installation — where the mirror turns the focus back on the individual. As with much of Eliasson’s oeuvre, the new permanent installation implores visitors to re-sync with the planet.
