Hi,
Many many thanks for all your very kind comments. In response to Dolores and the other people who have sent me emails let me explain...
The exhibit was in the turbine hall of the Tate Modern in London. Basically the artist, Olafur Eliasson placed a massive mirror on the ceiling of the hall and then put a row of arc lights behind an very large semi circle of orange gel up against the mirror, giving the impression of the full sun. Into the hall, which is huge, he then pumped 'clouds' made up of sugar and water. What I found amazing was that people were lying down and 'sunning' themselves. Probably says more about the weather in the UK! If you look up the artist on the web I am sure you will find some more photos of the piece.
