Process Update

This update is the first of many posts (belated mid-December update) that I will be adding to the blog over the coming days and weeks (months). I intentionally didn't edit or review any of the material I collected while immersed in this month of solitude with the winter landscape, so hence the late response to December's work. I wanted to look at all the material with fresh perspective once this space no longer surrounded me. Over the course of the past month, I compiled a lot of images, both still and moving, as well as drawings and a huge amount of writing (well, huge for me anyway). I have just started to go through it all now that I have arrived back in Reykjavik. And slowly the pieces of the puzzle are all starting to fit together. 
What I have realised is that I have become an avid weather watcher over the past month - not surprising really, considering the extremes that can happen over the course of a single day here.

The following footage is one of the many storms I experienced while here in Iceland. What I appreciate about this particular footage is the pace that the storm sets. It is initially difficult to tell if you are looking at a still or moving image. This piece requires time to slow down to see the movement of air; to match the pace of the weather system as it tracks across the afternoon sky.
