Dia Art Foundation and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) presented a special members screening of artist Joan Jonas's Volcano Saga (1989). Shot in Iceland and New York, this 28-minute video is based on a medieval Icelandic Myth, titled Laxdaela Saga, and features Tilda Swinton as a young woman whose dreams foretell the future. Employing layered digital effects, Jonas creates a ritualistic dreamscape of the young woman's imagination and desires. With this event EAI launched our 45th anniversary year. Following the screening, Dia Associate Curator Kelly Kivland lead a Q&A. Please click here to become a Friends of EAI Member.
