Tunnel is a collaboration between South Korean visual artist YuJeong Eom
and Australian sound artist Kate Carr. The pair met during an artist residency
program at Listhús in Ólafsfjörður in Northern Iceland in April 2013. The piece
celebrates the hair raising single lane tunnels which link the small coastal towns
of northern Iceland, and the dramatic changes in weather which can occur on
either side. Both YuJeong Eom and Kate Carr braved the tunnels numerous times
throughout their time in Iceland to draw trawlers, and birds and record the sounds
of the fjord and beyond.The sound for Tunnels is taken from Carr’s album Songs
from a cold place which was released on September 3 at flamingpines.com.
