Here are the first pictures! These were taken by Tyler, Korka’s husband. He walked a fair amount of the marathon to document the performance which was pretty fantastic. Thank you Tyler!
This is the first costume the horse before it falls under a spell that transforms it into a walrus.

How often do you get a medal? I can’t recall the last time I won a medal for anything, I think this is my first one. I am so proud to have accomplished so much with this first third of the project and to get a metal on top of everything else is just cool.
p.s Sorry for the misspelling, I was not trying to be clever just being dyslexic.

I am back in the states recovering from a triumphant project. I am sorry that I don’t have more media to post at the moment. My team and I are sifting through so much media but as soon as I get it I will start posting it so you can see what the performance looked like. We had the most ideal weather sunny and windy which kept us all comfortable though out the 13 mi. Here is a still from my interview on Channel One in Iceland from a show called Kastljos during a photo shoot with Oddvar Örn Hjartarson.

On a recent tea-stained day, we sat around our huge wooden table drinking cups of tea and talking, talking, talking. It was cozy weather day, which we all welcomed. Finally, a day to show off our newly found sweaters treasures from the Red Cross. Peter has become quite chummy with the ladies who run the store. He is always on the hunt for more sweaters. Here is his latest purchase.
Our days are flying by, at a furious pace. They are filled with walks, meetings, cooking at home, shooting, and of course, friends. We have eight more days until the performance and it is getting very exciting. We are planning on going dancing tonight. I am looking forward to cutting some rug and hope no one will be parking on the dance floor, ahem!
Korka and her husband have arrived after having a brief stop in NYC. Early Saturday morning Jenalee arrives from San Francisco and our Art Posse will be complete. My family, and more friends will arrive next week. I am thrilled. I am also looking forward to seeing how they will all fall in love with Iceland.

I would like to introduce you all to Jenalee. She is the another artist who is performing with me in Ritual To Break A Spell. Jenalee is a performance artist, artist. Her work explores the body and at times, a wink and to the glamour element of drag. By day she is the manager of Little Bird cafe in the Tenderloin and by night a video queen conjuring various embodiments of her spirit. Her are some samples of her work:
Jenalee and also met in the New Genres Department at SFAI. We really became close friends and collaborators during a film we made called The Slumber Party. It was an 8 hour performance piece with other SFAI’ers in studio 10. It was an exploration of teen/horror/party genre when a super natural element comes into play and wreacks havoc on their innocent lives.
Jenalee’s role in this performance is the embodiment of magik. Period.
