One Brick at a Time


An exciting recent work by Danish contemporary artist Olafur Eliasson has been installed at NGV International and the ladies of hml are heading down there this week to get their paws on the interactive joy that can always be found in a pile of lego.

Eliasson’s 'The Cubic Structural Evolution Project' invites audience collaboration: viewers contribute to the construction of a Lego world with more than 400,000 white Lego blocks as building material. Children and adults participate to continually build and rebuild an environment for the duration of the installation. Active involvement is encouraged by Eliasson as the work progressively takes shape during the period of the exhibition.

We love a bit of hands on stuff in the high falootin halls of the NGV - good on em. wonder how many blocks have gone missing so far? It'll be hard to resist slipping one into the hml bag! We'll let you know...
