To coincide with his major solo exhibition Riverbed at Louisiana Museum in Denmark, world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson has relaunched his homepage together with an innovative, web-based artwork, Your uncertain archive. In development for over four years, the artwork connects the public in an ambitious way to the studio and Eliassons immense body of work artworks, texts, sketches, interests, and ideas. A constantly changing and ever-growing pool of connections and associations, Your uncertain archive is a living artwork exhibited in the landscape of the web.
Your uncertain archive uses WebGL technologies and the three.js Library to produce a three-dimensional environment, accessible by WebGL browsers.
Olafur Eliasson says: I am thrilled that Your uncertain archive is finally open to the world. It is a reality-producing machine, built to generate new content through proximity and contact, and a source of great inspiration to me. It is a living archive that expands continuously. Embrace uncertainty!

Olafur Eliasson (IS/DK) was born in 1967. His works range from immersive environments of colour, light, and movement to installations which recontextualise natural phenomena. He has exhibited worldwide in major solo shows such as The curious garden, at Kunsthalle Basel in 1997. He represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 and later that year installed The weather project at Tate Modern, London. Take your time: Olafur Eliasson, a survey exhibition organised by SFMOMA in 2007, travelled until 2010 to various venues, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2012, Eliasson launched Little Sun, the LED lamp and social project that addresses the need for light in areas of the world that have limited or no access to it at the Tate Modern, London.
