This earlier August, an costly good good friend and I made our technique to Videy Island, Iceland, the place we acquired right here nostril to nostril with Afangar…. The piece is comprised of twenty-four freestanding monolithic basalt columns positioned in a sort of spherical configuration throughout the island’s edge. It’s stunningly pretty; elegant and deceptively straightforward. It appears to be every historic and stylish, contextual and however significantly of an oddity.
