Bettina has been working on an art project for the last four years which is based on the first ever science fiction book: Somnium by Johannes Kepler, published in 1634. Now, 400 years later, Bettina traced the book’s story back to Iceland, researching and collecting materials for her current project, a sequel to Somnium (working titleDuractous’ Journal). She spent the month of June 2014 at an art residency at Listhùs in Òlafsfjörður, Iceland, where she kept a blog. Titled Midnight Sun Journal, the blog is a collection of images, panoramas, sounds, videos, and thoughts she collected during her stay.
Bettina gave an artist talk at Listhùs about herSomnium project and her work at in Iceland – you can watch it on YouTube here.
