Yellow fog at the Verbund Headquarters in Vienna, Austria

Fire! Fire! Fire! Yellow smoke is drifting from the basement of an office building in a central place of Vienna. A truck from the fire brigade is standing next to the building, but the firefighters don’t care. What is going on? Well, the solving of this marvel: It’s not a fire. It’s contemporary art.

The intervention by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is named ‘Yellow Fog’. Every day at dusk, a kind of yellow fog rises on the fa├žade of the VERBUND headquarters.
