landmarks – land marks / gazing-grazing
Land is being marked by tourism, sheep, or by the Icelandic people themselves. All leave marks in the land. Good or bad, these marks are part of what Iceland is today. They are part of everyday gaze, sometimes subtle, sometimes not. How have these become an integral part of the countries’ landscape since some of these marks in the land have become landmarks themselves. How are the tourists’/sheeps’ marks effecting the natural elements of the Icelandic land? What would the land look like if no tourist/sheep was there to mark/graze it? Sometimes, they are difficult to discern in the landscape itself. This is what this piece questions : the marks in the land and the landmarks they have formed.
