Dream, 2005, Video
Finnbogi Pétursson has worked for many years on poetic visualisations of sound. Carefully selecting tones, he has drawn, sculpted or created architectural spatialities in various ways. In latter years, he has incorporated water and light to make the sound visible. In Dream two sinus notes are produced in a darkened room. These tones unite in the middle of the room, generating a new kind of soundwaves, on the same frequency as the brainwaves that occur in a person who is daydreaming. With a bowl of water lit from underneath Pétursson paints the ceiling with a state of mind.
