Agusta Yr is an Icelandic director and artist. Yr draws her influences from her own life and the places she has lived, especially the differences in culture, mainly pop culture. She grew up between Miami and Iceland and studied photography and video in New York. Yr is now based in London where she works from her studio in Seven Sisters.
Feeling bored of photography and video, Yr moved into more experimental work in 3D. She likes to experiment with new forms of media and try out processes that aren’t necessarily supposed to be used for films or videos to explore ideas of surrealities and dreams. She aims to take the viewer into another dimension whether if it is a 15-second video or a 14-minute film.
