QRF (Where are you bound from?) / QRD (Where are you bound for?)


Bedding plants (Daisy)

The works are influenced by the history of Grafarvogur as a burial site and play with the notion of matter and life cycles.

The work is based on international communication signals of the old Q-Code, "QRF" and "QRD", spelled in Morse code with bedding plants. It is located mid way between the old dumpsite and the modern cemetery close to the Iceland Radio telecommunication centre.
