Sjaldan … (Seldom …) 2010

Sjóhús, Garður, Iceland
programmed Morse code lamp


The work was realized inside a former fisherman’s hut. It referred to the Icelandic proverb Sjaldan er ein báran stök (There seldom is a single wave.) Over a period of 67 days, the word „sjaldan“ was transmitted by a Morse code lamp for several times a day. The structure created by signals and intervals, visible in the transcription into a code, appeared over days and weeks and increasing in scale successively. In watching the complete work, one could discover the fractal-like pattern of micro-macro relations.
