Myndskeið Walkers á stafrænu formi og "Viscous shape"

LISTI YFIR MYNDSKEIÐ FRÁ WALKER  - filmurnar eru geymdar í Kvikmyndasafni Íslands í Hafnarfirði.

Listamenn, sérfræðingar á sviði myndgreiningar, voru í Breiðdalssetri og klipptu saman 5-mín-myndskeið úr u.þ.b. 10 klst myndefni sem til er í Breiðdalssetri

Það sem þeir segja eftir einnar viku vinnu með efnið:

"It takes more than guts to peer into an erupting volcano... Or to stand beside a river of lava moving at 40mph... Or to gaze at a cloud of tephra larger than any skyscraper. It could even be said that in doing these things it's not just the earth's stomach that you witness but your own insides, your human guts and sense of scale. During the later years of his life, George Walker turned to investigating active volcanos as a way to perpetuate and develop the then little-known science of rheology (the study of fluid dynamics). Walker used cinematic technologies to record his rigorous explorations of lava flow, and only now have his films been rediscovered and preserved for the public to share in his life's work. With an eye for the unlikely and ineffable, artists Curtis Tamm (USA) and Hermione Spriggs (UK) reopen the unseen cinematic and textual archives of George Walker. Through a collaboration with Breiðdalssetur, geology center, the artists work with Walker's archive as a way to engage the literal and metaphysical implications raised by the groundbreaking work of this scarcely known geologist."
