Footwalk

Twelve channel video/audio installation 2019

Twelve flat monitors and small speakers are installed in a narrow room, open on both sides.
They are mounted down by the floor, six on each wall of the room.
The recordings are made on the floor/earth, in different places, and show a part of the wall and floor.
A right foot steps into the image on the first screen on the right, and then walks through. Then another foot, a left one, appears in the next screen on the opposite wall and goes through. Then again a right foot in the next on the right wall, and so on through the room, resulting in an uninterrupted walk, where all the feet and all the places are different but forming a whole. The feet appear in just about live size.

The sounds of the footsteps are different according to shoe character, ground/floor material etc, so a short a melody is created. The walk is repeated with different shoes and places. The walks play at ca half a minutes intervals.

The production was supportd by the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund
