Flooding – Nature Lost

Rúrí, Multi channel video installation at Amos Anderson Art Museum

The video installation Flooding – Nature Lost was first shown in StartArt at the Reykjavik Arts Festival 2008.  It has now been installed in larger scale at the Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki.

The artwork consists of two projections and three videos presented on flat screens that are each supported by a wooden structure.

The videos are shot during the filling up of a gigantic man made reservoir in the highlands of Iceland. The videos were shot during the submerging of a waterfall into the reservoir, but they also witnessed a number of birds nests disappearing under the rising waters.
