DAWN is an audio-visual spatial installation on the borderline between reality and dreaming, the immediate and the eternal. It is a visual poem about our constant search for meaning, our place in the world and the sublime.

DAWN is a triptych and is based on the symbolism of a triangle where three parts create strong balance and one whole. It discusses the questions around mind, body and soul; past, present and future; and birth, life and death. In this way the art piece creates an almost sacral state of reflection and inspiration and invites audiences into a poetic, dynamic and contemplative experience.

DAWN is a triangular structure with three projection screens, three projectors, sound system and light design. It is the work of Anastasia Isachsen, a video artist, based in Oslo, Norway. She creates video art for projections, light design, scenography and concepts for various cultural projects: concerts, dance performances, theatre and installations. Anastasia has collaborated on numerous Norwegian and international projects for concerts, dance performances, theatre, installations, exhibitions and shows. Her work is presented on the main stages and venues in Europe, the USA and India.

Country represented by installation: Norway
