Abstract:

  • The collaborative OMNI ANIMA art project investigates how the traditional and indigenous expression of the Sami joik can be compiled, transformed, processed and shared through an interactive electronic sound installation. Based on indigenous art forms, the project impacts several areas both within culture and arts. One being joik as a tool to negotiate identity in a post-colonial perspective and a tool that has been essential in forming the idea of a sami nation, Sapmi, in Northern Scandinavia.
