Tunnel is a collaboration between South Korean visual artist YuJeong Eom and Australian sound artist Kate Carr. The pair met during an artist residency program at Listhús in Ólafsfjörður in Northern Iceland in April 2013. The piece celebrates the hair raising single lane tunnels which link the small coastal towns of northern Iceland, and the dramatic changes in weather which can occur on either side. Both YuJeong Eom and Kate Carr braved the tunnels numerous times throughout their time in Iceland to draw trawlers, and birds and record the sounds of the fjord and beyond.
The sound for Tunnels is taken from Carr’s album Songs from a cold place
which was released on September 3 at flamingpines.com.
