Rapid Sunsets is an artist’s book, and materialized part of an archive of found (or captured) photographs from road surveillance cameras situated at isolated road passages in East Iceland. The archive has been accumulated since 2012 as a methodological approach in the search for encounters with unfamiliar territories. The book pages, hold together merely by the folded cover, 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 / surface.
