The Mobile Island

The video is about the idea of mobile islands, switching the viewpoint between above and under the surface of the sea. The 1-meter long model island confuses the perception of scale and distance in relation to the diver, waves and the horizon.

First shown at the solo exhibition The Mobile Island, Institute of Contemporary Art Overgaden, Copenhagen, 2002. Since part of The Maldives Exodus Caravan Show, which premiered at the Venice Biennale 2013 and has since toured to eight countries.

The miniature island and video are produced and recorded in Maldives, 2001. This work inspired the Inflatable Island sculptural prop produced for the touring exhibition The Maldives Exodus Caravan Show.
