A three-channel video and installation created with Berglind Þrastardóttir. Using a combination of filmed footage and archival footage, this installation tells the story of our mother‘s experience evacuating during a volcanic eruption that destoryed her childhood home and reshaped the island where she was raised. The film tells an abstracted story that relates to our mother‘s experience, shifting landscapes, and family histories.

Each video has a different length. When the vidoes first play, the imagery is sequenced in a deliberate way, but as the videos loop again and again, new formations occurs. Every time we tell a story, it changes ever so slightly.
