SEPTEMBER 16th 2018 — As part of the course Inngangur að sögu Íslands (“Introduction to the History of Iceland”) by Markús Þ. Þórhallsson, we visited The Settlement Exhibition on the Friday of the first week of classes.
The building was constructed around the remains of a viking longhouse excavated in central Reykjavík in 2001.
I moved to Iceland in the summer of 2018 after a sojourn in Paris the winter before. I was born in Finland. This journal features explorations of various works of art & entertainment undertaken while here in Iceland. Sometimes there may be clear connections to Iceland. Sometimes not. I have written for games such as SERENA (downloaded on Steam more than 1.6 million times), and currently I am writing music, poetry, and a script (screenplay & stage play) set in Iceland. I am also on Spotify and share all music I listen to there.
