María Dalberg’s work revolves around the intersection between music and language. She writes sound poems, either fictional or non-fictional. Her work is multidisciplinary, most known for her video installations. Using both analog and digital technologies she develops and manipulates audiovisual material.
Interested in faraway places, both mental and physical Dalberg employs research methods from her academic history studies, including artifacts and archival material. In her current work, she focuses on the voices of lower-class women found in Icelandic manuscripts from the Enlightenment and the Romantic period.
