The "X"

I am interested in exploring the translation of mind to hand to eye to the next mind…

X is negative, neutral, and positive.

I have used the letter X, an already ambiguous symbol, to design works which reference the

signage, landscape, and darkness in Ólafsfjörður.

X marks the message from a foreigner.
