The Illusionist

Richard Wilson has a permanent installation at the Saatchi Gallery, consisting of a room full of thick black oil. Using reflections, he has created an illusion called '20:50' where the viewer can stand in the room, feeling as if they are surrounded by oil.

Maybe he was trying to make a statement about our obsession with oil, and the over consumption of it. Why should so much fuss be made over this destructive liquid?
