Artist Statement

Rift #26 was made in Iceland at an excavation site on the island of Heimaey where a fissure in the earth opened on January 23, 1973 and hot molten lava buried approximately 360 houses. Here, the North American Plate is moving westward, creating new crust as magma pushes up from the mantle. Geologically, this is a divergent boundary, characterized by splitting earth, steaming hot water, volcanic eruptions, and a young lava landscape almost devoid of trees. The land is unstable and raw.
