Rapid Sunsets by Litten Nystrøm, is a materialized part of an archive of found (or captured) photographs from road surveillance cameras situated at isolated road passages in East Iceland.
The archive is in steady progress since 2012, refelcting local circumstances and the notion of encounters with the unknown. The possibitlity of new horizons by entering unfamiliar territories.
The book pages, hold together merely by the folded cover (297x420mm), unfolds to three larger broadsides, comprised of a number of unidentified flashes of light. The cover can be read as a continuous line of compressed data; location, direction, temperature, wind speeds etc connected to the depicted images: Formal scientific information accompanying images that on the other hand hints to the unidentified, – happenings of unfamiliar character and origin submitting light to an otherwise monochrome space and surface.
The project has been kindly supported by Uppbyggingarsjóður Austurland.
