Monday Ice: The Weight of Mountains

The main impetus for moving here, the instigator of my desire was the draw of the mountains. They physically, psychologically and spiritually affect me and I adore living amongst them.

Over the past few months I have been involved and working with the NES Artist Residency which is situated in the next town a 45 - 1.15 minute drive away, the route taken dependant on the vagaries of the weather. During the last 3 months the NES residency has been focused on film with 10 international film-makers spending the winter in Skagaströnd and creating a response to the theme "The Weight of Mountains", the town and the Icelandic environment.

One of the artists of the residency Temujin Doran from Britain has made a stunningly beautiful, poetic and informative film titled "The Weight of Mountains"...Tem's website is also worthy of lengthy perusal.  Enjoy!
