Three primary colored lights (red, green, blue) are cast onto a snow landscape at night. Together the colors create white light, which is split into its spectral elements due to the formation of the snow.

Elín Hansdóttir (*1980, Reykjavík) is one of the most outstanding contemporary artists from Iceland. She has lived between Berlin and Reykjavík throughout her artistic career, with a recent show at Reykjavík Museum of Art and holding a residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin in 2021/2022.
Her site-specific installations focus on the viewer’s experience of built landscapes through the manipulation of architectural forms, auditory elements, and optical play.

Hansdóttir studied at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee from 2003-2006, as well as at Iceland Academy of the Arts from 1999-2003.
