The television version of Think is on hiatus this week, but they are re-airing one of my favorite episodes of last year tonight. In November, Olafur Eliasson stopped by the studios to discuss his just-opened show, Take Your Time, with host Krys Boyd.

I stopped by the Dallas Museum of Art last night for Jazz in the Atrium, and while I was there I took another spin through Take Your Time. It’s hard to recapture the wonderment of seeing the stunning visuals for the first time, but I found it a show that still rewards repeat viewing. I still found it difficult to turn away from this:

What I found more interesting, though, was watching the group of tween-to-teen school kids explore the installations. The looks on their faces were pretty close to the looks on mine when I first saw it.

If you haven’t checked out the show, it’s on display through March 15. And if you prefer the picture-tube version of Think, it airs on Friday at 7:30 p.m. on KERA (Channel 13). It airs again Wednesday at 1:30 a.m.
