We in the Academy are preparing for visiting Höfn after the weekend, discussing methods and potential results and methods. Materials from the sea will be based on what comes out of the sea each day and the students have to be prepared to act to what comes up in relation to their wishes and the directions that they like to play. It will be great the dialogue with the locals each time and find what is going on. Of course we will only know what happened after the week itself when we return and reflect on design and art in cooperation with local industries that are both very traditional and experimental at the same time.
In school we are preparing for the unexpected and have started collecting possible materials and support systems for what can happen. Here is a photo of some of the stuff that we think we might need. The week will be fun surely.
