I say this a lot, and I said it in one of my books. No. Actually I said “contact becomes content,” but the very perceptive Olafur Eliasson has changed it to contact is content. And this has now become the title of a book of his landscape photographs of Iceland and some smaller artworks. It will be launched at the Louisiana exhibition Riverbed opening in August.
Working with him has been quite magical this last half a year.
Contact is content is also an OOO phrase. If you think of an object as what some call a medium, then you get there.
