Nature-based Tourism
Site Specific Prints and Installations

As a Fulbright scholar in Iceland in 2010-11, I travelled the Ring Road (one of the most popular tourist routes in Iceland) leaving giant lines of text at the most scenic destinations. Alongside this project, I reprinted my photographs of the landscape as postcards that question the relationship between tourism and nature. These postcards were then inserted onto postcard racks with "normal" postcards in shops across Reykjavik.
