Finnur Arnar Arnarson (b. 1965) finds his inspiration in familiar reality. His works have evolved from being relatively realistic—in the form of installations, photographs and texts—toward videos presenting dreamlike, open views of Icelandic nature and nature within ourselves, sometimes with autobiographical references. Themes in his work include alienation from the environment, the objective and subjective experiences of time and space, and technology as an extension of human will and determination. Finnur studied sculpture and mixed media at the Icelandic Academy of Art and Crafts, has worked as a stage and set designer at the Icelandic School of Drama, and has taught at the Iceland Academy of the Arts.
