Library of Water

Shot while on a year long artist's residency at HEIMA in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.

During my residency I was exploring notions of our perception of reality, the nature of light, changing states of matter, the underlying structure of the landscape and our connection to the cosmos. I have been investigating optics and the distortion of our percieved environment.

This video was filmed at the Library of Water in West Iceland. The space contains columns of glacial water collected from glaciers around iceland. The room is host to a spectacular array of refractions and reflections which constantly warp as you move.
