In week 6, we abandoned our habits and explored our personal rituals – in this we shared, before the chaos. And Then The Light Came. A night walk. Friends, old and new. The town illuminated, transformed.
In week 5, we were joined by the wonderful Erik DeLuca and Minerva Pietilä. We made radio from conversations, we wrote about Beyonce, about things we thought were secret. Endless lists that made our wrists go numb. We shared love letters, we danced with the town in protest to end violence against women; a collective movement of bodies. We recorded friends and strangers reflecting on daydream thoughts, we had afternoon tea and we witnessed the death of a cat named Neil Catrick Harris. We started a community radio station. We read a reading that we wrote and that was beautiful.
Visit terrain / terrain, a platform created in order to bring the mediums of word and sound together, to give you snapshots of the works created in week 5 here at LungA.
In week 4, we broke our own rules, we broke our own work, we danced on the roof in the rain, we made edible paintings, we dreamed up absurdities and asked google to translate them, we cautiously covered bones in gold and engineered handsfree painting machines. Days spent at the beach, a scalp cyclops sculpture & conversations with the fishermen.
In 36 hours, we transformed a fish factory into an exhibition. We named it Borderline Vanilla / I Hate this Shit Museum.
‘The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. This creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it. A new thought often seems like a feature of the landscape that was there all along, as though thinking were traveling rather than making. And so one aspect of the history of walking is the history of thinking made concrete- for the motions of the mind cannot be traced, but those of the feet can. Walking can also be imagined as a visual activity, every walk a tour leisurely enough both to see and to think over the sights, to assimilate the new into the known.’

!! BIG NEWS !!
We’re starting up another program at the LungA School!
It’s called ‘175’
It’s 175 days.
It begins in the fall, goes trough the winter, ends in the early spring.
And we can’t wait to get started!
We welcomed back artists Abby Portner and Milos Sofrenovic to deliver the first workshops of the semester. In this fleeting moment our students were challenged and pushed into and out of comfort zones. They found within themselves the potential to perform, to create an exhibition in a day, to make sound from image, and above all else LungA partook in one of the closest Karaoke battles Seyðisfjörður has seen.
