Fog Storm, 2018

A collaborative sound and video installation.

Drowse - Kyle Bates

Kremdar - Jesse Keating

This installation showcases four found objects that have been re-engineered into interactive sculptural instruments. The artists use these objects to create sounds and explore their natural surroundings. All music has been created by the artists and was recorded in Skagaströnd using the sculptures, a field recorder, and the  computer. Video projections recorded while at living NES Artist Residency around certain regions of desolate Northern Iceland.

Fog Storm plays with tangible and digital deconstruction of the natural world in the Anthropocene.
