Holve and Sher traveled to Iceland for an artist residency during the summer of 2012. They were awed by what they saw. The geological wonders and phantasmal forms gave them a glimpse of what the earth might have been like in its beginnings. Iceland was a "land of the verb" with underground rumblings randomly spewing out as steam, lava, and rocks through pockets of the earth.
