Stopmotion video installation

Outdoor video projection approx. 6 x 2 m
Installation: video projected (29 x 51,5 cm) on table

sjálfboðavinna [voluntary act] is specifically made for the video festival 700IS Reindeerland held in Egilsstaðir, East Iceland, October 2014 and Reykjavík, January-Februar 2015.
The work is a local version of frivillig handling first made in Aarhus, Denmark in 2013.

The work questions the terms 'voluntary' and 'free will', and the definition of acting and working voluntarily in today's society.
Furthermore, the work questions artists' working conditions: acting voluntarily or working unpaid? And is thereby intended to both take a critical look on its own foundation and field, as well as to ask critically to one's (the viewer) perception of her/his understanding and experience of 'free will' and its relation to her/his actions - whether they are voluntary or not.
