The intention of The Settler project is to capture some of the trends that characterize especially the Danish art scene at the moment in literature, visual arts, performing arts and music. With the project we will establish a series of new collaborations between the arts and between artists who have not previously worked together.
Morten Bo Johansson and I made a giant Cube. 3 meters wide and 3 meters long, and 2 meters tall. The walls and the ceiling was black so it was totally dark..
Inside we covered the floor with real grass and built a mosaic mirror pyramid (1 meter x 1 meter) We projected different light images, and movies clips directly onto the pyramid to create the light effects.
Our intent was to create an installation in which when you enter you feel like you are in a different world. Sense perception was a key ingredient, the smell of the earth, the grass, the darkness and the light glimmers.
