These images were taken in Mývatn (which is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland). Specifically they were taken near the very small town of Reykjahlíð, where there are volcanic outdoor pools and baths. The water in the images is warm. The little islands are volcanic rock, the whole place is dark and silent and misty. I felt very outside myself here.
Then Kim reminded me of Laurie Spiegel and her work, Voices Within… the murmurs, (desires) of machines we have made, calling signs, the sound of process and function. I feel this is perfect music for these images.

This is me with 3am feelings and intense dreams about the life and desires of a 19 year old horse rider living in the 1940s Lithuanian tablelands.
I want to be there, on a spit between sea and tidelands. The dream also saw me pushing a chair and trying to thread a burnt out lightbulb. The cliffs of the tablelands were dark rock cascading to the sea. In one part I saw the men in a game of horse-riding, maybe polo, played on the smooth flat grass. I saw a map, an atlas opened with the long lines of cliffs skirting around the very tops of the earth. The 19 year old should not have been riding, she was a woman. You could tell though by the dirt on her leather boots… scuffed slightly. I was changing the light in the hallway of a university.
I have been feeling down lately and I am not sure why. My show opens 21 May and I am speaking to the two lovely artists who will write some words for a catalogue. Trying to tease out of myself a lot of answers. I will be in Iceland in November I know that. What else I know.
