    A Secret Split Have a problem with boundaries? Then you’re in the wrong place. Sorry. Iceland lies on the Mid Atlantic Ridge and is being split by the movements of the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate. When you drive from Keflavik airport to Reykjavik you go along the edge of the North American plate where it meets the European plate. In Thingvellir valley, the site of Iceland’s first parliament, you can see both sides of the plate boundary in one sweeping panorama. In one place you can get even closer than you ever dreamed possible. - See more at: http://www.inspiredbyiceland.com/secrets/map/#secret296 Music by Pascal Pinon

        Located in the Þingvallavatn Lake in the Þingvellir Region of Iceland, Silfra is a rift valley/fissure that is part of the divergent tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates. This fissure is fed by waters from the nearby Langjökull glacier and has amazing clarity. A simple intro to this dive site, shot with a GoPro Hero 3

          GV Art presents Lost in Fathoms, a collaboration between Anais Tondeur and Jean-Marc Chomaz (CNRS, France). This show presents a series of installations, drawings and photographs created around a narrative that challenges our perception of oceanic and geologic time scales and human's impact on the environment. In 2012, at the very point where two continents collided, the island of Nuuk disappeared without trace. At the same time, in Brisbane, the 34th International Geological Congress advanced a new era — the Anthropocene: an age where mankind has become a global telluric force. Was the disappearance of Nuuk island a one-off or a direct consequence of the emergence of the Anthropocene? This project sets out to investigate the causes involved in the disappearance of the island. This project has evolved from an expedition of the emergent part of the Mid-Atlantic ridge and the region of deep oceanic water dives. It was developed in intense collaboration with Jean-Marc Chomaz during a year of research as an artist-in-residence at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory, LadHyX (CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique, France). The residency started during the Cambridge (UK) and Polytechnique’s 2013 summer school on fluid dynamics of sustainability and the environment. Exhibition : 17 October until 29 November 2014 Private View : Thursday 16 October, 6pm – 9pm GV Art gallery, London, 49 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, London W1U 6LY

                New Zealand is a land of adventures. The Island is surrounded by the raging waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea sculpting the coastline. The active volcanoes on North Island continuously build new landscapes, eroded by heavy rain and mighty windstorms. Sitting atop the boundary between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates, the island is shaken by frequent earthquakes. The rising summits are among the highest in Oceania. New Zealand landscapes tell the story of their geological past, revealing the origin of plant and animal diversity and the beauty of this part of the globe. Local guides and scientists help us discover the stunning geology of New Zealand through the exploration of the Bohemia cave system, the descent of dizzy canyons and the ascent of some of the island’s highest summits and volcanoes.

                    A quick little edit I made while going through some footage I shot in Iceland last month. We were snorkeling through Iceland’s Silfra fissure, where the eurasian and european tectonic plates meet. The water there is from a glacier, making it one of the least diluted lakes in the world, giving divers the clearest views underwater.

                      Hunter Jackson wanted to build impressive simulations of the tectonic plates that shift beneath the Earth's core which cause the volcanic eruptions. Wild West took this on as a personal challenge. See what ensued. We think Hunter's life students are going to love it.
