Like all things intertwined, suspending time, 2014 touches on interconnectedness and the ethereal translation of the magic of the Icelandic moss heaths. Holding and dispersing, what is realistically a never ending cycle of life and death, Heldon and Raffan witnessed the heaths and their ability to hold the magic of sagas long told and the wonder of visible minute ecology. This work explores the impact the heaths essence had on the collaboration and the significance they have on Icelandic culture and preservation.
