Eyjafjallajökull 2010

2010, Installation of 13 drawings, each 40 x 50 cm

Drawing installation from the NASA’s satellite photos of Eyjafjallajökull’s vulcano eruption at Island 2010 (paper size A2). Pictures of reality seen from earth, translated into drawings. Each paper/drawing represented a date from the documented process, and made their own systematic composition throughout the papers as a collection (seen from left to right). A duration just like a time based movement within the drawing, like a repetition of the eruption, enhanced with calender pages on the floor. The hanging position created the same relation to the viewer as the one that the satellite had when observing the process of the living vulcano. The distance and the feeling of abstraction in relation to it was my interest, both within the drawings and the following and repeating of the phenomena that controlled the whole world but never really became close to us. More or less a spectacle, a fascinating force of nature with great visuality.
