SURT’S DIARIES

-CREATION MYTH FROM NORSE MYTHOLOGY-

This is an ongoing personal project since 2014.

Mythology is a legacy of traditions, and bears a message from the past. The original sources of information, the oral tradition, can be interpreted in an infinite number of ways, and contain the shared feelings of an ancient collective. This project takes the characteristics of oral tradition and makes an interpretation of the creation myth of Norse heritage. Surt’s Diaries is a visual and auditory experience which tells the story of the beginning of the world according to the ancient poems of Norse mythology. In this project, the Norse Mythology is reconstructed as a collage-style animated film, composed with objects collected from nature and daily life in Sweden.
