Finnbogi Pétursson

Ódur is Finnbogi Pétursson’s audio-visual ode to the nature of Iceland. Ódur begins with only one fleeting image and sound fragment which is followed by a few seconds of ‘nothing’. Then, Ódur is built up image by image. Every time a new image is added, the sequence starts all over again.

About the artist

Finnbogi Pétursson born 1959 in Reykjavik. Using ‘pure’ sound as his primary medium, Finnbogi Pétursson literally shapes his work out of thin air from its natural physical properties. Elemental in form as well as content, Finnbogi’s starkly beautiful and powerful pieces capture acoustic phenomena in water, wind, metal, and fire.
