Hi Marina! I am so happy that I could make a comment. I haven't gotten a chance to read everything throughly, but this is my first impression. Do you remember that amazing art exhibit that we went to at the MOMA during my last visit? I knew that Eliasson had done some weather exhibits and he also did a water one.

You can google it and get more links, but I thought that it was interesting. I will think some more on it too.
