Singularity / Sérstæða

The centre of a black hole is called a singularity. At that point, the state of matter is so remarkable that

time and space cease to consist in their familiar form. The word is taken from the language of

mathematics and represents a point at which a function takes infinite value; infinity being the concept

around which the installation revolves.

The installation provides a counterpoint in darkness; a contrast to the endless days and continuous light of the

summertime. The light and sound are controlled and generated by the movements and interactions of those

within the space. New landscapes are created with each visit inside.

Comissioned installation: opening piece for the 50th anniversary of the Reykjavik Arts Festival, 2020.

Collaboration with Baldur Snorasson, Kristian Ross, Katerina Blahutova and Listahátíð í Reykjavík.
