Glass puba high

Uggi, light created with Fanney Antonsdottir, was first exhibited in 2001 as an installation of 14 fish lamps, sand and feathers at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Copenhagen. The light has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world since then, among them Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin and The National Museum of Women in the Arts, in Washington DC. The inspiration for the light is the old icelandic tradition of hanging whole fish up on special wooden structures out in nature where the fish dries in the wind.
