Synopsis

This took place in early October at Hveragerði’s Sundlaugin Laugaskarði and has produced a music film to accompany Emiliana Torrini’s single I Heard it All Before. The video’s inspiration was 1930s director Busby Berekley and was directed by Ali Taylor of Academy Films. Ali won best video in the Icelandic Music awards 2005 for her Sunny Road video for Emiliana. This video went on to win the Music Video category at 2010's Northern Wave Film Festival.

Director

Artist Statement: I take what is in my head and make it real. I am a child born of the emerging digital world and have a continual hunger to record what I do compulsively in digital form. My existence is a drop in the ocean, the documentation forms the ripples. My inspiration comes from childhood dreams, from synchronicity, from freeing those from their own constraints and a personal obsession with spandex. I proactively involve those outside of art to become art, to live art, to feel art. Those who are entangled in what I do, what I make, are often completely unknown to me before we merge ourselves together. Undercurrents of female empowerment run deep, specifically with regard to the female form but come secondary to creating visual imagery that envelops the viewer in a candyland, making their mouths water - summoning without them knowing why there is a sudden desire to come out to play. I have not studied art and am unaware what is standard. The more I create the more I want to.
