One of the most geologically active landscapes in the world, I explored Iceland with art and science collective Super/Collider in 2016. Strange and stunning views from volcanoes, glaciers and archipelagos became the basis for a series of photographs using silicon wafers and paper sculptures touching on my investigations into gravity.

We climbed up the Solheimajokull Glacier with a glaciologist and her assistant who regularly measure its movement. Climbing deep into its structure below the surface, volcanic dust punctuates layers of activity. Note the people standing on the upper left – oblivious to the grinding chaos below.
