Adriene Jenik, professor of intermedia in the School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University, was awarded a competitive artist residency through NES in Skagaströnd, Iceland.

Jenik is currently completing her residency in Iceland, where she is expanding her interpretive text related to her public performance offering “climate future” readings with her ECOtarot deck. She is also structuring and writing a book based upon this public performance practice.

NES Artist Residency was founded in March 2008 in Skagaströnd, a small town in northwest Iceland. Artists live in three shared houses throughout the town. The NES studios, located at Fjörubraut 8, are housed in what once was the main fish processing plant of Skagaströnd.
