Olafur Eliasson is a Danish–Icelandic artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art. His work has been extensively exhibited internationally in major museums such as the Tate Modern, MOMA and SFMOMA among many others.

Olafur’s practice is informed by Iceland’s dramatic landscape, which features in several of his works addressing environmental issues, perception, and the relationship between the man-made and natural worlds.

Riverbed was a site specific installation at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark. It consisted of rocky landscape, crossed by a river which, spanned across the entire wing of the museum, making it look as if the landscape invaded the museum.

I worked closely with Olafur to create an identity for the exhibition that felt analog and carried the idea of riverbed in the DNA of typography.
