Horsing Around Iceland

Whilst in residence May 2016,  Nes Artist Brenda Oelbaum  spent some of her time working with the local children on a project that would engage them and help them see some of the world outside of their small village.   The children and some Nes artists individually painted an array of plastic horse figures which have all been tagged with a QR symbol and set free around the country (as is done with the real ones at this time of the year).  The horses are hiding in a variety of places and the finders are asked to scan the symbol and post a photo of themselves  with the horse and upload to the Facebook page.

It has been a fun project that keeps on giving!
