This was a string (woolen lopi) installation in a street side gallery in Reykjavik hosted during the mid summer evenings.Gallery Nemhvad, Reykjavik, Iceland.
While living and working at a friends (Einar Mar and Christina's) home in Iceland, I collected planks and strips of drift wood that would wash up on the beach of Ljosa Cliffi in Hafnarfjourdur. The reconstructions would reflect the journey I imagined these pieces of wood to take along the volcanic coast line of Iceland.
This is from one of many spark drawings that I would create during the dark winter nights in Iceland. Using a grinder to strike sparks from remnant steel in the landscape, I would record the 5-6 minute composition with the camera's shutter open, registering a collective body of light.
