“Rafmögnuð Náttúra” is a temporary and site-specific light installation that animates the facade of Hallgrímskirkja church with a 3D video mapping projection inspired by the natural conditions of Iceland and the church’s unique architecture. The aim is to transform the static condition of this iconic landmark into a dynamic, engaging and interactive visual experience, and to intervene by socially activating its surrounding public space.
‘Rafmögnuð Náttúra’ was exhibited at the Reykjavik Winter Lights Festival 2012 in Iceland February 9-12th and included a live performance of the Icelandic band, For a Minor Reflection. The installation was conceived by architect and artist Marcos Zotes and created in collaboration with Chris Jordan, Thessia Machado, Noa Younse, Andrea Dart, Steven Tsai, Coco Karol, Azmi Mert Erdem and Raghul Sridharan.
