Duration is a self-contained performing object.
Una Sigtryggsdóttir is an artist based in Reykjavík. Her work breaks apart the apparent dichotomy between objective time(mechanisms such as clocks and calendars) and subjective time(perceived changes and experiences), choosing to focus on how these two methods of keeping time may intersect. In her work, flipbooks, shadows on draped fabric, and changes in Gross Domestic Product are equally valid as measures of time. These and other time-metric constructs are folded into her sculptures, videos, installations and music.
