- Finnbogi Petursson
The first installation is an immersive sound piece by Finnbogi Pétursson. The Icelandic artist uses different sound frequencies to mimic a dream state. Water and light are utilized to visually capture the sound, creating a transcendent experience.
“Pétursson’s sound sculptures often elicit a palpable sense of mystery and discovery, suggesting an openness to the kind of world-shaping powers that are especially evident in Iceland.” – Gregory Volk, Art in America, 2001
