The theme of Gaia refers to Mother earth who, according to Greek mythology, is the “Mother of all” and who was never separated from the earth nor personalized. This theme allows me to reflect on the resemblance between human expression and the forces of nature as well as the sonic and visual diversity of water and earth.

In this piece Gaia’s extraordinary creation of new land is the topic. Filmed during the volcanic eruption on Fimmvörðuháls, Iceland,
April 4th 2010.
