Rafmögnuð Náttúra

February 9th-12th, 2012 / From 20:00 to midnight
Hallgrímskirkja church, Reykjavík, Iceland

Marcos Zotes, winner of the Reykjavik Winter Lights Festival 2012, brings Iceland's most recognizable building, Hallgrimskirkja church, to life with light and movement as part of the Winter Lights Festival.

The Festival begins with the opening of "Rafmögnuð Náttúra", a temporary, site-specific installation inspired by the four elements that occupies the facade of Hallgrimskirkja church with a large video-mapping projection, transforming the static condition of this iconic landmark into a dynamic and engaging visual experience. The event includes a live performance of acclaimed Icelandic band For a Minor Reflection. Conceived by Marcos Zotes, created in collaboration with Thessia Machado, Noa Younse, Andrea Dart and Steven Tsai.

Following the opening event, "Huldufólk" showcases a series of site-specific video performances that aim to challenge the audience’s spatial perception in an installation that blurs the boundaries between dance, film and architecture. Conceived by Marcos Zotes, created in collaboration with Coco Karol, Azmi Mert Erdem and Raghul Sridharan.

In addition, Marcos Zotes and Chris Jordan perform a series of interactive video projections. "Norðurljós" includes Chris Jordan's time-lapses of solar activity, recorded by NASA's SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) from the days immediately preceding the festival, and Marcos Zotes' dynamic visualizations of aurora borealis.
