artist and architect, marcos zotes, of new york city, has shared with designboom his new work, ‘rafmögnuð náttúra’. the video-mapping installation
was a temporary, site-specific work which appropriated the facade of hallgrímskirkja, the largest church of iceland, and enhanced the building
with color and movement moderated by the use of a midi controller. through the interaction of shapes and light with this static structure, the icelandic landmark became
a dynamic visual experience, having engaged passers-by in the public space, drawn in by the large projections and sound. the projections upon the front of the church
had been adapted to incorporate the formation of the existing facade.

‘rafmögnuð náttúra’ was exhibited at the reykjavik winter lights festival 2012 in iceland february 9-12th and included a live performance of the icelandic band,
for a minor reflection.
