‘Iceland Stories’ and ‘More Iceland Stories’ is probably the full collection of poems and images in two volumes. It was the culmination of the work which was inspired by our residency in Iceland.
Every page in this version of the collection is made by laminating silk with long fibred paper tissue. Many of the pages have embedded patterns and shapes.
It is accompanied by a sound sequence of poems and is contained in a box.
