A place prepared for sleep / Staður undirbúin fyrir svefn. Kinetic sound installation and performance piece. Found wood and iron, Icelandic wool. Skagastrond May 2013, as part of the Summer we go public program at NES. Please watch video in HD with headphones.
We walked the piece from the studio to the cliffs and installed it over a space where I slept. The strings extend seven metres and if you lie underneath they move and coalesce in the wind, and the strings look like how the waves sound. Meditative. Making liminal spaces habitable may generate new ideas of collectivity. Thank you to Yogan Muller for inspiration and documentation assistance.
