A performance by Robert Seidel and composer Nikolai von Sallwitz that was staged as the opening event of the Ulaanbaatar International Media Art Festival 2018. The work’s video projection onto the museum’s Tarbosaurus bataar re-stages the dramatic atmosphere of the final days of these prehistoric creatures.
The performance’s name iridium derives from the rare metal, which is found mainly in meteorites that hit the earth about 66 million years ago. The so-called Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event at that time erased three-quarters of plant and animal species, including the dinosaurs, and had long-term effects on the climate, sea level and earth’s flora and fauna.
