How do perceptions change over time? How can art affect our perceptions of reality?
Olafur Eliasson is an artist who is deeply concerned with time and temporality. He creates installations that are often in motion, changing with every minute that passes. He believes that his art is an open-ended process completed in different ways by each viewer. In this activity, you will generate a descriptive essay in which you record observations of your bedroom at three different times of day. Writing, like Eliasson's art, is a process. Therefore, you will also participate in peer editing and then revise your first draft.
