“An old technology museum, swarms of Chinese tourists, artists financed by a luxury hi-fi company who let themselves sink into their projects far away from civilisation and deep on the horizon, like the dark background radiation of Dieter Roth. And what else was I doing here? I scratched, I slept, I collected on the surface. I wandered and searched for my own place in the structure.”

With a distinctive voice that balances earnestness and irony, The Expanded Sense, is Ann Carolin Renninger’s visual and textual annotation of her experience of the coastal town of Seyðisfjörður, Iceland. In this artist’s book, she blends texts, photographs, Super 8 stills, drawings, and visual notes, delving into the complexity of this land and her role as an artist and a foreigner.
Drawing from her extensive background in documentary filmmaking and her deep-seated concern for ecological issues, she presents a nuanced portrayal of the region. She immerses herself in the fabric of the local community, weaving together their stories and the micro-narratives that resonate within the landscapes she observes.
