During my four month residency at the Fish Factory Creative Centre, in Stöðvarfjörður, East Iceland, the main body of work I created was "Rock Faces"- an ongoing project taking different forms. My decision to choose a remote location for a long term residency was about rediscovering connection and community in an isolated place.

During time consuming construction, the Rock Faces have become familiar and I’ve reflected on the idea, and in this case, irony of building community when the traditional concept of community is no longer available. The objects are worn in a form that is performative and active within the landscape and surrounding community that inspired them. Through documentation of the performance I am aiming to show how I am processing their identities through interaction.
