I am a member of Isle of Games, an art game collective founded in 2017. The collective consists of a diverse group of people all with the common goal of making and exhibiting video games and their extended family in Iceland in collaboration with local poets, novelists, musicians, and artists of all kinds. So far, we have put on two one-day events, Isle of Games 001 in 2018 and Isle of Games 002 in 2019, and are planning to do more in the future. Isle of Games events are a mix of talks, one-of-a-kind games installations, and performances involving games played live on stage.
