There is no such thing as a good decision,

Katrin Sigurdardóttir is an installation artist who creates disorienting environments meant to alter a viewer’s sense of perceived and embodied space. In her early works, Sigurdardóttir created sculptures resembling furniture from cut foam, which appeared to be renderings of Icelandic topography. More recent works have taken interior architectural elements—shelves, storage compartments, floors, ceilings, and supports—as the material and conceptual basis for transformation into fantastical spaces. Conversely, many of her modifications borrow from the exterior world, most frequently natural settings in Iceland; common imagery includes glaciers, rivers, mountains, rocks, and lava fields. Viewers encountering her work are often required to wander around mazes, duck through short doorways, or climb up ladders.
