Longing Fast Forward is a long-term sonic and visual examination of the speed of change and experience of time in Northern Greenland.
Intense climatic and political change manifest in everyday life and increasing human activity reverberates in the vast landscapes surrounding the small settlement, Kullorsuaq, situated on the edge of the inland ice, north-western Greenland.
For the last decades numerous scientific research and weather stations have monitored the quantifiable parameters of these changes.
The videoinstallation documents one circle of a year by interlinking continuous recordings of three local hunters, data of an artistic research station as well as local climate data.
The exhibition space summarizes the data and questions different forms of knowing and gaining knowledge about the environment. During the 11 hour long installation the pace of human life, of landscape and of weather is brought into a mutual mode of observation, suggesting a junction between the velocity of human activity as opposed to an alternating climate and ultimately a self-reinforcing acceleration of change.
One year of recordings
automated and personal
compressed into 11 hours of video
set to a generative soundscape.
The installation will first be shown in the Nordic countries. We are currently planning the exhibitions and will update the list below as agreements form.

A visual artist, programmer and scenographer. At the intersection of art and science he develops and appropriates new technology, creating works with software at the core. His work ranges from stage performances and modern dance to large scale interactive installations. In his work he focuses on the behavioural aspects of interactivíty, adaptivity, and generativity.
She works on the interface between installation, life-art and performance searching to handle cooperative initiatives that transcend the fading borders within relational projects and audience-involving installations. Seeing the artwork as a social interstice, she wishes to orchestrate situations and events that involves human interaction in a social context, suggest refuges and durations whose rhythms may contrast those of everyday adaptations and routine encounters.
Works in the field of electroacoustic music. His main focus is based on the intersection of music and technology with special interests in the spatial distribution of sound and interaction possibilities between the musician and the created sound. He worked together with composers, creating live-electronic systems, or designing spatial concepts for international performances.
