Phase Transition/Landscape of Voices

Audio/video installation

Phase Transition/Landscape of Voices is a project about the changing environment (and resilience) of the northern arctic region. This work incorporates community engagement developed within the framework of design thinking as a process of work that focuses on the social and cultural components of community and site. The work includes excerpts of Icelandic residents’ place-based narratives. Their stories are about sustainability, preservation, the changing state of the northern climate and how local government and international industry has negatively impacted their country. The audio narratives are accompanied by abstracted footage of icebergs rolling in the surf on the south coast of Iceland.
