Húbert Nói (b. 1961) studied biology, geology and chemistry at the University of Iceland in addition to his studies at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. While painting forms the core of his artwork, his diverse oeuvre includes drawings, etchings, videos, and even a CD of real-time music for astronauts. His creative work can be conceptualized as a sort of contemporary alchemy: transforming the scientific into the spiritual. While he literally measures and maps physical landscapes, he also measures human emotions; the synthesis becomes his art. Húbert Nói’s works often take their names from GPS locations. The video piece HE – 3 can be seen as a metaphor for creative action.
