Interactive installation at Reykjavík Arts Festival, Harpa & Idnó 2020

Vide by Blair Alexander Massie

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 Michael Godden, Baldur Snorasson, Kristian Ross, Katerina Blahutova, Raphaël Alexandre and Listahátíð í Reykjavík.

Presented:

Iðnó, Reykjavik, Iceland, June 2020

Harpa Conference and music hall, Reykjavik, Iceland, August 2020
