February 02, 2004: The Tate Modern a la grain

Went to see Olafur Eliasson's "Weather Project" installation at the Tate Modern gallery in the weekend. It's quite cool, and certainly very photogenic.

This image is of a detail of the wall of the turbine hall housing the installation.

Shot handheld at ISO 1600 I wanted to emphasize the industrial dystopian associations I got by looking at the smoke coming out of the tall concrete walls, so I converted the image to Black and white in Photoshop Elements, and turned up the graininess a fair bit.

[ Canon EOS 10D, lens 70-200mm, 1/90 sec, f/4.0 ]


very interesting photo, cool! i saw several photos taken on the 'weather project' in the meantime and i'm really sad i missed it
