Hrund Atladóttir: Comes to light
13 January–31 January
Comes to light is an installation by Hrund Atladóttir composed of lights that will brighten up the current darkness and revive the mental health of visitors during January
Hrund Atladóttir artworks are composed around a timeline and animation plays a large role. For the past years she has been most noticeable for her large video installations in public spaces. This time the internal body clock is the timeline and the animation takes place inside the viewer’s/visitors body. A certain summer light is brought into The Sculpture Garden and the visitors receive a dose of daylight for 24 hrs a day during the darkest time of year.
“A master clock in the brain coordinates all the biological clocks in a living thing, keeping the clocks in sync. In vertebrate animals, including humans, the master clock is a group of about 20,000 nerve cells (neurons) that form a structure called the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN. The SCN is in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus and receives direct input from the eyes.”
