Soundboards once made for Chinese toys that no longer work have been salvaged and granted a second life in minimalistic cases made of Icelandic material. Guests are welcome to try the new “toys”.

Toys with electronic sounds are always made of plastic, and made in China. Salvaging sound boards from broken toys, Thorunn builds new cases for them using local Icelandic materials. The shapes and material choice is a minimalistic interpretation of the sound, based on basic geometric shapes and raw materials. This is an interactive exhibition where guests are allowed to test the objects and learn about the whole process through sketches and reflections.

Guided tour of the exhibition - Saturday 25.03. at 15:00
