Rafmögnuð Náttúra is an UNSTABLE Space (aka Architect, Marcos Zotes) project that Coco contributed dance and choreography for. It is a temporary and site-specific light installation that animates the facade of Iceland’s Hallgrímskirkja Church with a large 3d video-mapping projection. Inspired by the natural conditions of Iceland and working with the unique architecture of the church, Marcos Zotes transformed the static condition of
this iconic landmark into a dynamic, engaging and interactive visual experience. Zotes’ intention was to intervene in the city by socially activating an inactive urban public space, temporarily becoming a vibrant community place.
Marcos Zotes’ Rafmögnuð Náttúra was selected as the winner competition entry for the Reykjavik Winter Lights Festival 2012 opening act, which was organized by Höfuðborgarstofa, Orkusalan and the Iceland Design Centre.
