North America (2014)

This project was the culmination of a self propelled journey from Yellow Knife, North West Territories, Canada to St. Louis, Missouri, United States.  Using the Patrick Leigh Fermor’s trip through Europe in the 1930s as a rough outline and following the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline I walked, paddled, and cycled my way into a dark and solemn summer.

Neskaupkóda or Norðotype

In the summer of 2017 as the collective Designers and Forests we participated in a summer residency in East Iceland. Using the methods we have been using with the D&F project we created the small community project: norðotype.com.
