Jakob Riis: “Starboard and Fish”
A sound/text composition featuring Ola Paulson talking about and reflecting on his experiences with fishing and SCUBA-diving, while Jakob Riis are preparing a snack of potatoes, gräddfil and onions.
Marinos Koutsomichalis: “sāk vitt ok vītt of verǫld hverja” (from 1:00)
A hybrid performance pivoting on a multi-level exploration of the Icelandic landscape and the artist’s own personal (un)makings of, and creative responses to, it. This manifests in terms of photography, video/audio recordings of various acoustic, eletromagnetic, geophysical, and anthropological phenomena in-situ, text sketches, and scientific sonification/visualization of data concerning energy consumption, weather change, seismic activity, fish migration, and spatial distribution of marine population.
