The cubic structural evolution project: Olafur Eliasson

On our travels in New Zealand we visited the Hastings City Art Gallery and we interacted with an exhibit:
The cubic structural evolution project, 2004, is a hands-on installation by Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson. Comprising thousands of pieces of white Lego bricks scattered on a large table, the work invites Gallery visitors to become ‘architects’ by using the Lego to create endlessly re-forming structures limited only by imagination.Towering cityscapes emerge out of the rubble of Lego bricks and constantly evolve as new visitors contribute to the work through construction, modification, destruction and re-construction – processes inherent to the lifecycle of any metropolis.

It was fun to construct and add our versions of buildings, ladders, Donkey Kong, King Kong and other creations to the large white Lego structures.

The exhibit continues until 28 August 2016
