About This Book

SEEK Volume 01: Iceland is a visual novel with nine short stories where the editors Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer combine fact with fiction starring a cast of Icelandic characters, with fragmented and intricately collaged and conceptual narratives that seamlessly merge into one another. It presents an opaque and desolate mystique where fantasy meets history. It is a publication that documents the multilayered project conceived during their studies at the HDK School of Design and Crafts at Göteburg University that experiments with visual styles, the art of storytelling and graphical structures.

Read More About This Book

SEEK is a collaborative formed by Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer. Their work is based on an inter-cultural interest using a fusion of techniques acting as directors, writers, adventurers, researchers, photographers and artists creating conceptual and anthropological visual narratives about a country or place.

SEEK Volume 01: Iceland is their first publication that documents their multilayered project conceived during their studies at the HDK School of Design and Crafts at Göteburg University that experiments with visual styles, the art of storytelling and graphical structures.

A supremely evocative book - through pictorial maps and compelling photographs - SEEK Volume 01: Iceland, records timeless legends, ghost stories and personal histories. Starring a cast of Icelandic characters, it reveals beautiful intricately collaged narratives that seamlessly merge one into the other. It is a vivid and striking publication that experiments with visual styles, the art of storytelling and graphical structures presenting an opaque and desolate mystique where the bizarre meets history.
