In your artistic process, do you start with the impact you wish your work to have or the materials you would like to explore?

Olafur Eliasson: "It's difficult to pinpoint the beginning of an artwork—I almost never start from scratch. And I don't really think about the impact or the materials. I'm more interested in exploring questions, such as: Do you feel a part of this world? How do you use your senses? Do your actions have consequences? How can we link our brain to our bodies?"
