Glacialis Gudbjargarson

2017 - Ongoing

Glacialis project is inspired by the ancient Icelandic tradition of storytelling and folklore. These stories emerged from people inspired after seeing supernatural creatures in nature—on their travels during a moonlit night or in blizzards during winter when cliffs disappear and reappear and take strange shapes. This interaction between people and nature is fascinating.

The project made me think about the volatility of the subjects. All of the ice and snow in the pictures were only there for a few hours before something else was shaped and finally melted away. So many of the subjects of the Glacialis project are long gone. This reminds me that nature is delicate and we should cherish it and, of course, not forget to take care of it.
