The uncontrollable and eerily beautiful volcano is inseparable from its iconic lava flows. But what about the geothermal signals that precede the violent jets of molten rock, and the human ability to warn people about eruptions? Multidisciplinary artist François Quévillon was near the Icelandic volcano Bárðarbunga when seismic signs started to appear in August 2014. He set out to record the phenomena that were observable on the landscape while waiting for the eruption (fumaroles, boiling mud pools, as well as monitoring devices). Presented as an installation, the sequence of videos changes based on a probabilistic system linked to data coming from the sensors of the computer showing them, eloquently underlining the instability of the environment.
