About

With its frequent rain and summer melts, Iceland is especially suited for waterfalls. However, with the rise of hydroelectric dams, the number of these waterfalls has declined in recent years. Multidisciplinary Icelandic artist Rúrí seeks to archive these endangered waters in an interactive, multidisciplinary installation of 52 photographs of waterfalls taken on the banks of both muddy glacial torrents and clear mountain streams. The work encourages user interaction and then presents a strong visual and acoustic experience, with the photographs adding their magnificence to the tremendous sounds resonating through the space. Part of Nordic Cool 2013.
