‘Iddu’ (meaning ‘Him’ in Sicilian dialect), is a 360 degree artwork realised on the landscape of the active volcano Stromboli. Made over a period of four years, this 15 minute film combines 360° and 180° panoramic multi-camera views originated on Super-8 film, coupled with a soundtrack generated from the collaboration between James P Graham and celebrated sound artist Akio Suzuki who performed in situ on the volcano. The end result is a 12 screen dodecahedral installation within an enclosed circular space of 9m diameter which immerses the viewer into the centre of a unique, and petrifyingly beautiful landscape.
First presentation was at the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand Duc Jean Luxembourg (MUDAM) from Oct - Nov 2007. Generously supported by Arts Council of England, MUDAM, and NESTA Foundation
