Description Volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull 2010

Until now we have almost solely seen documentary
photos of the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull.
The photographs in this exhibition show different
stories and gives people the possibility of enjoying
beauty within a frightening moment, driving the imagination.
Fridrik´s images in this exhibition were photographed
from helicopter in close presence with the eruption and
show steam, ash, lava and ice explode out of the stratovolcano´s caldera.
They show us the eruption surprisingly; mysterious and closer
than we have experienced before.

The aphopenic symmetrical photographs ignite the
imagination for finding unknown shapes; wonderful,
strange, hypnotising, complicated or simple. They
remind of klecksogaphy where inkblots make mirrored
images. This method has been known from the time of
Da Vinchi & Bottichelli. In the last century many know
of the Rorschach psychological test where inkblots are
used for analyzing personalities.

Photographs are infused into the aluminum coating.
