Philip Dodd talks to the artist Olafur Eliasson who famously created artificial sunlight in the Weather Project at Tate Modern. He's also been responsible for engineering four man-made waterfalls in New York, founded a company producing solar powered LED lights, and has just published a cook book. The Ukrainian writer Andrey Kurkov discusses his latest, The Bickford Fuse, an allegorical study of the Soviet soul set between the end of World War 2 and the fall of communism. And to consider the Russian soul today, Philip is joined by columnist and Russian commentator, Mary Dejevsky, and novelist Zinovy Zinik. The Kitchen by Studio Olafur Eliasson and Unspoken Spaces by Olafur Eliasson are out now. Andrey Kurkov's The Bickford Fuse is published on the 6th of May. Zinovy Zinik's latest novel, Sounds Familiar or The Best of Artek, is published now. Producer: Craig Smith
