ICELANDx207 is a multi-media project documenting Iceland’s recent entry into the Maine waterfront and economy. It includes portraits of Icelanders in Maine, documentation of the revitalized International Marine Terminal, and chronicles a nine-day independent residency from Portland, ME to Reykjavík aboard an Eimskip container ship. This work will be presented in a retrofitted shipping container to be located in Congress Square Park in conjunction with the 2016 Arctic Council meetings hosted by the Maine North Atlantic Development Office in Portland, Maine (Oct. 4-6, 2016).
