Alia Malley is at NES with collaborator, editor Noah Herzog to complete post production on her video project, the Logic of Events.
Started on her Arctic Circle residency, the 3-channel projection installation continues her work based on the roles and expectations of landscape, representation, human geography, technology, and the instability of the power structures inherent within those relationships.
Fan-Ling Suen is a cross-disciplinary artist from Ontario, Canada. Her work extends across a variety of media including sculpture, installation, drawing, photography and most recently sound. Since working on a vegetable farm, Fan-Ling’s research has begun to expand beyond the intimacy of interpersonal human relationships to consider our connection with surrounding ecologies.
While in Iceland, Fan-Ling will play her musical saw in different natural areas. She will begin to open a musical dialogue with Skagastrond’s underground soundscapes by using a combination of transducers and buried aquaphones in the soil to engage with the earth as a natural amphitheater. www.fanlingsuen.com
In December last year we had the privilege to host Tatiana Ginsberg here at Nes. She is papermaker and specializes in traditional Japanese papermaking. She taught a short course where we got to learn how to make really thin and beautiful paper. Here below you can see a video that Joseph Marhl made.
