Siggi Eggertsson is well-regarded as one of the finest talents in Iceland right now, and his newest project certainly shows off his impressive skills. Titled SKVÍS, the installation is an overwhelming collage of colors and patterns that line very inch of the walls and floors of the SPARK Design Space. What you’re seeing is a series of eight modular posters that can be put together in a number of different combinations, creating a nearly never ending number of variables.

I also like this description of the exhibit which is definitely rooted in some trippy areas.

The nature of the pattern is almost always spiritual – a suggestion of divine beauty. This beauty of infinity is always present in Siggi´s work. This may be related to methods for expanding ones mind, whether by use of substances or meditation as used by hippies to glimpse a different world which is not a reflection of our own world, but a world within. That world has goddesses floating about, as can be seen in Siggi Eggertsson´s representation of a world few of us have visited. He invites us on a guided journey as someone who has seen a world none of us have seen. This is a journey into infinity where we fleetingly catch a glimpse of the goddesses and make the briefest of eye-contact.
