We are proud that our experimental DVD title sequence has become part of the Experiment Marathon Reykjavik held at the Reykjavik Art Museum. The installation of our work included the paper stack that we made during the production of our chromatographic title sequence animation, plus a full playing of the final completed title sequence. This was housed in its own temporary structure, creating an intimate space for visitors to view the exhibition lectures and experiments.
Experiment Marathon Reykjavik, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programs and Director of International Projects, Serpentine Galleries, and artist Olafur Eliasson, is a two-fold project that expands the idea of experimentation and display. It comprises an exhibition and a public event, which brings together leading international artists, writers, and scientists to form a ‘laboratory of experiences’. An accompanying exhibition catalogue titled Experiment Marathon Hans Ulrich Obrist & Olafur Eliasson is available via Amazon.
