"Hello! How are you? How is your nature?"
is an interactive sound installation consisting of domes caves. Guests can crawl into caves and experience different sounds.
From the outside, projected video works in caves surfaces, so they appear as living sculptures. The installation contains, music and stories from places and people in the North.
Songs from whales and seals in Disko Bay, human voices Nordic ancient myths, everyday sounds from today's Ilulissat, scientists and residents of various ages from Ilulissat and elsewhere talk about their nature and their thoughts about the future. These tales meet with music -and sounds that fantasizes about the relationship between culture, body, nature, civilization and the wild desert. What would a millenary air bubble from one of the icebergs in the Ice Fiord tell if it could sing and tell us? What we hear from the past, if we put your ear to the rock? And what would the future tell if it could talk to us from the wind and the sea? What is your story about your nature and the future?
