Back from my second residency at Gullkistan Center for Creativity in Laugarvatn, Iceland. This island nation continues to inspire with its gorgeous panoramic vistas, bubbling “hot spots”, rocks, lakes, horses, sheep, cliffs, sunsets and so much more. With their current push for tourists (1 million this year for 330,000 citizens), the popular sites are now more crowded with bus tours each day. Reservations are required where none were 4 years ago. It is still vast and idillic in many parts but if you are thinking of going – soon will be better than later.
The West Fjords inspire – still pristine as it’s a bit out of the way for tourists.
PENNY screens in Iceland – and as always Penny Cooper garners new fans.
Rituals of Remembrance – the art of mourning made with Maggie Simpson Adams over the last 8 years is on the home stretch! Work-in-progress screening in Iceland was followed by a vibrant discussion of death and mourning practices and ideas – just like we hope it always will. Watch of upcoming screenings this fall – check Rituals of Remembrance Movie on Facebook for details.
