Water Project - Iceland

Nordplus (SKISS) workshop at Myndlistaskólinn á Akureyri in October 2012 with six participating art educations gathering for one week in Akureyri around the topic of Water.
A very interesting week indeed.

Below some images of my work at the final show. The work is very much a crude sketch and it needs several days or weeks before the idea takes formal shape. 
Salt water is slowly dripping on the Icelandic 1-krona on top of the buoy. The waterdrop breaks into several smaller drops that falls on the surrounding collage which is a mix of images of whaling and Icelandic postcards. The evaporating waterdrops leaves crystalized salt on top of the images and slowly makes them disappear.
The installation was only up for one day and there was only time for smaller spots of salt to appear.
