In July 2022, the Turfiction research project invited artists to a week-long workshop in and out of turf farms and in the waters in the North of Iceland. To use the words of van Dooren et al., the workshop celebrated “different modes of attentive immersion” (van Dooren et al. 2016) on our journey to open practices of co-worlding — creating and performing visions, languages, and stories of multispecies and earthen politics. The results of the workshop were published in State of the Art – Elements for Critical Thinking & Doing (2023).
