Isolated thunderstorm over Singapore. As surreal as it may look, this is not a composite image. The thunderstorm was very isolated, that’s why on the left and right there are no clouds.

Last night I went out behind our home and had the pleasure of watching these young deer play on this hillside. This huge storm cloud moved in right behind them. The cloud did not produce anything but the scene was very cool to witness.

Commissioned for The Unilever Series in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London, The weather project 2003 is probably the most popular installation made by Eliasson for a museum to date.
The weather project tells of the climate and of its social effects, in the context of a museum.
Eliasson examines his lasting interest in the subject:
The weather has been so fundamental to shaping our society that one can argue that every aspect of life – economical, political, technical, cultural, emotional – is linked to or derived from it. Over the centuries, defending ourselves from the weather has proved even more important than protecting ourselves from each other in the form of war and violence. If you cannot withstand the weather, you cannot survive.
By Olafur Eliasson
