This is a series of scanned mountain ridges around
Stöðvarfjörður (a fjord in the East of Iceland).
The mountains consist of more than eleven million year old basaltic rocks. Their lava layers, always tilted
towards the center of the island, were once connected, forming large plains of overlying lava fields. The
glaciers in the Late Pleistocene carved huge gouges into the rock masses, leaving behind sharp ridges, that
demarcate from the sky with disctinct contours (on a clear day).
What appears to be stirdy, immobile constructs of nature becomes vivd and fluent, once you start changing
your perspective. Moving only a dozen of meters, the compositions of all the lines describing the mountains'
characters will shift ‒ the outline of the ridges in front of the clear skies, the tilted lava layers
inclined towards north-west, the trails that falling gravel leaves behind or the gashes that are carved into
the slopes by the rivers ‒ they all are moving, as you change your perspective.
