For CRASH-ED I was concerned by the economical crash Iceland had suffered resulting in the country's migraton since 1887.
I found the fact that locals were deliberately crashing their cars in order to pocket the insurance money simply devastating. Throughout the island you can find metal scrap yards, and in them, the ghost's of an Iceland that once was.

In the wake of the Icelanders leaving their country in the hope of finding possibilities elsewhere, a natural corrosion is occuring and not only in the country's perfect landscape, but also within the deepest fibres of its existence. CRASH-ED; EVERYONE IS GONE speaks of the abandonment and decay left behind.
