audiovisual portrait of an Icelandic fishing trawler

Nominated for the Marler Video Art Award

includes online access to the film

NS-12 is an expressive audiovisual portrait of an Icelandic fishing trawler created through the collaboration of the filmmaker Kristján Loðmfjörð and the composer Konrad Korabiewski. Alternately presented as a multi-channel audio and visual installation or as a work for 5.1 cinema screening, NS-12 poetically considers a fishing trawler in East Iceland as a self-contained world, a space which functions both as workplace and as collective living arrangement with its own rhythms, demands, and mythologies. Artistically, the ship is perceived as a living organism, as a musical instrument, and as an industrial visual landscape with distinctive textures and colors.

The book includes essays by Daniel Canty and Anna Friz, an interview by Kristín Ómarsdóttir with Iceland’s former president Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, and online access to the full audiovisual work released in partnership with ZKM Institute for Music and Acoustics.
