A portrait of the Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. The film introduces Eliasson's work and aesthetic theories as it documents one of his largest exhibitions ever, "Notion Motion" at the Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. An excursus examines Hans Richter and his abstract film "Rhythm 21" made in 1921. A one-hour interview with Adrian Searle, the art critic of the Guardian, is included as a bonus feature.
