Who are some of your favorite artists and why?

Olafur Eliasson: "As a student I was influenced by some of the "Light and Space" artists in California—James Turrell, Robert Irwin, and Maria Nordman, for instance. My interest in other artists doesn't depend so much on the medium they use, but more on whether we share an interest in asking critical questions. It's not about agreeing with others or finding the right questions; it's more about their attitude to art and reality."
