About HEIKŌ/ HEILD
Before my first visit to Japan, I thought Japan would be composed on the one hand of an ‘urban intensity’ and on the other hand of a ‘peaceful nature’.
I quickly realized that it was more complex than that, there was some kind of balance and equilibrium in between both and in the relationship the inhabitants have with both environments.
With the help of my good friend Saki, I found that the Japanese word « Heikō » would be a great fit to describe my documentation of both environments.
Heikō means Balance / Equilibrium but it also means parallel, which was even one step ahead in my project since I then started to study the parallel between Japan and Iceland.
Describing in one word what I’ve learned, experienced, and documented in Iceland was at first, more challenging, there were few directions I could go. But I realized that what has always fascinated me in Iceland was its ‘urban creativity’ which coexists in harmony with an ‘intense nature’. At that point my dear friend Jófríður helped me finding the right Icelandic word to caption both : « Heild » , which means « whole » in Icelandic.
