Cencus

An outdoor audio sculpture and performance in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.
A reading from a list of nicknames, names the local people in the fisherman town of 600 people give to each other in a variety of context. 
The town is Seyðisfjörður in the of east-fjords of Iceland. Over a period of two months prior I gathered 483 nick-names and twice I read them in alphabetical order toward the mountain above the town, the sound resonated over the town, the fjord and echoed back to me during reading. The readings took place on June 17th and August 3rd 2014 During the exhibition a lowkey reading could be heard from a megaphone attached to a pole integrated in the sculpture that took the form of a small stage.

The work was part of the RÓRÓ the summer exhibition of Skaftfell Center for visual Arts in Seyðisfjörður.
