Hirsholm Island, is one of several tiny islands that make up the Hirsholmene Archipelago that sits on the boundary of the North and Baltic Seas. One can easily walk the longest length of the island in ten minutes. The largest island of the archipelago it has been been inhabited since at least Viking times and has served as a fishing village, stone quarry and a World War II German military outpost. During my month stay I worked to locate openings into the past, fractures in the present and the moments when the past and present met.
