After a week of grey, wet skies and a conversation with a local student about the drastic reduction in daylight hours over the past month, I decided to graphically investigate Iceland’s unique solar condition.
At this point my representations only investigate the length of time the sun is in the Reykjavík sky over a year-long period (2011). The atmosphere, moods, and excitation that light/darkness create in this country is definitely a part of the Nordic light phenomena. I hope to get further into this qualitative aspect of Icelandic light in future representations.
But for now, I’ve made a few different representations and would like YOUR opinion! Which graphic makes the most/least sense to you? Which graphic do you visually like the most/least? Why? Please participate and make a comment.
I am intentionally not describing these graphs…more on them latter.
