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 seem 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 still awake in the land where the sun doesn’t set, it barely touches the
horizon and fades seamlessly into the sunrise.
