burials

Due to the geological location of Iceland, she is very prone to natural disasters. Within natural disasters, can we also stay positive and take the opportunity of, for instance, volcano eruptions? This research project looks into the predictions of a volcano eruption, and proposes the possibility of returning our loved ones to nature. By putting or burying the ashes in the neighbouring area of the volcano before the eruption, the eruption then turns into a celebration instead of a disaster.

Project produced with Ruth Klucklers.

Toolkit for the celebration of returning our loved ones back to nature. Kit consists of a map, landmark and a candle.

Publication

An insert about the celebration of the volcano will be attached to the daily newspaper when it erupts. It informs the public of the status of the volcano and also the people who have been returned back to nature.
