They will give people the possibility to reconsider their relationship to these spectacular surroundings and I hope they will evoke experiences that are both individual and enhance a sense of collectivity.”

Beautiful pictures on Flickr by dietrich Eliasson was also one of the first blogs we posted at the Met. This is our 4th! If you have some time check this SFMOMA page out.
