I have only read the book "...I never saw another butterfly..." the
exhibition has not been to Iceland. But the book had a very strong
influence on my and I read the poetry often. I have often thought about
working with the book but not found a suitable way yet. So I would also be
glad to hear any ideas. Maybe ideas people have worked with in connection
to the Holocost Museum.
Best regards from the far north,
