YOU ARE IN CONTROL 2014
Registration is now open for YAIC 2014
You Are In Control, international conference exploring innovative thinking across the creative industries. Held annually in Reykjavik, Iceland, we welcome a network of international and local guests, experts and creative thinkers from every field to interact, inspire and be inspired.
YAIC will take place at Bíó Paradís, Reykjavík on November 3-4, 2014.
Now in its seventh year, YAIC is a collaboration between experts from every area of Iceland’s creative industries – including design, visual arts, literature, music, media, films and gaming. Through talks, workshops and events, YAIC provides a cross-disciplinary platform for ideas, innovation and collaboration.
In 2014 YAIC focuses on “creative synergy” – on projects and processes involving innovative or unexpected cross-disciplinary interactions. The opportunities for boundary transcending collaborations that achieve ‘a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.’

The four elements are important on Iceland; it is part of the folklore tradition and historically related to the first migration. The history of Iceland is a long and adventurous saga. The settlement of Iceland begun in the second half of the 9th century when Norse settlers migrated across the North Atlantic. The shortage of arable land in Scandinavia may have been the reason. Unlike Britain and Ireland, Iceland was unsettled land and could be claimed easily. With that history in respect we will draw special attention to how Icelandic photobased artists are using and developing their concepts within the four elements – earth, air, fire and water. The exhibition showcase works by eleven Icelandic artists of different generations.
