By admin, May 15, 2008

Installation, I8 Gallery, Reykjavik
Plastic buckets, mop, broom,
pedestal, single-channel video projection, sound
Dimensions variable
Duration: 13 min

Objects that look as if they were discarded by a cleaning company are arranged together on a pedestal. Buckets have carelessly been left next to each other, and a broom is simply resting on a pedestal. Superimposed onto the objects is a video of white lines and white dots, which illuminates the objects as well as creating a prismatic effect. Light forms sprout from the plastic objects and expand into the environment: Large colorful circles and lines are drawn across the walls, the floor and the ceiling. The video and the shadows cast by the objects can be seen on the wall. The soundtrack has been created from a recording of insects in a rainforest outside Rio de Janeiro.
