Local Winds (Seydisfjördur)

Local winds occur on a small spatial scale and they are greatly influenced by the topography of the site. Seydisfjördur is located at the far end of a fjord. The village is surrounded by steep hills and it forms a recipient or a kettle that amplifies the impact of the wind.

Using a self-made kite equipped with an action camera, I set out to record the movement and the breath of the wind on video. The kite with the video camera presents the landscape from an atmospheric perspective that reveals the airborne sound and a point of view peculiar to the turbulent and unruly mountain winds.
