About this piece:
There’s an immediate and visceral awe at the grandeur of the Icelandic landscape that is absolutely inescapable; the geography so vast and differentiated. There’s the well known and expected (but no less wondrous) barren alienness of the place, and yet I also found myself reveling in the unexpected; nose to the ground everywhere I went, engrossed in vivid growing green and the myriad details of infinite inexhaustible life literally everywhere underfoot. In several moments I found myself witness to absolute glory; utterly captivated by some numinous presence, profoundly moved by something beyond human comprehension… Though there’s a banality too; the monotony of the endless driving, and the trappings of tourism, the sense that the real Iceland is just off road at the edge of the horizon... It is my intention with this spread, to capture and present a sense of the many overwhelming impressions, textures, moods, that add up to a remembered feeling of my time there. Through the juxtaposition of poetry, painting, and transfer photography, it is my intention to evoke a heightened, feeling appreciation of the everyday in an exceptional place… Inviting you, the viewer, into the same frame of mind I found myself, wondering: “Is this place real?!”
About this artist:
Visual Amalgamist | Philosopher Hobbit | Oneiric Wanderer
After graduating BFA in Digital Media from Otis College, Casey pulled a stint as one-third of the directing collective ‘Three Legged Legs’, leaving a humble body of audiovisual madness in his wake. After its dissolution, an extended sabbatical led to co-founding the radical indie dev space ‘Glitch City’. Since then, he’s contributed Narrative & World Building / Level Design / Miscellaneous Artistry to the award winning Kickstarted Indie Game : ‘Hyper Light Drifter’. Casey is interested in the creation and enrichment of meaningful culture. To that end, he has been exploring the power of story and mythology, while also actively engaging with Depth Psychology, Jungian Analysis, and Dreamwork. He’s an avid letter writer and is often found not wearing shoes.
