BIRDWATCHING AND SILVER SUNBEAM (2019)

In Birdwatching and Silver Sunbeam, Rainy Siagian attemps to observe the way the Midnight 
Sun affects the landscape in Iceland. Which is a natural phenomenon that takes place during
the Summertime, where a consecutive 24-hour span of sunlight can be experienced. 

By Switching her day into night and night into day, body and mind got fully confused. Days seems
to be endless. Dark, starry night can’t be observed. Through wandering in nature, a conceivable field
of action was created within her, an intermediate space full of transformative dynamics. After midnight
while everyone else is asleep, the birds and herself seem to be the only one who is still awake in the
land where the sun doesn’t set, it barely touches the horizon and fades seamlessly into the sunrise.
