about

Moonchild was written on the one moon birthday of Anika Loa, my partners baby, which he created & co-parents with his amazing friend Jenni. She was born on a full moon and we had a little moon celebration on the next full moon. She´s also a cancer, so a true Moonchild.

My idea for the video was to show the Moonchild in everyone - the bravery it takes to come in embodiment on the planet today & the celebration of being alive & being in a body. Me & Rebekka Rafnsdóttir brought our iphones to the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island & filmed the colorful merman & maids. I guess mer-folks are the missing link in our history of evolution ;)

We finished filming in my mom´s garden in iceland. On the very last day of editing we decided to call few ladies to jump into the pool with me. I´m so grateful for their spontaneity. We edited for two sleepless nights before i went on tour. Something happened with the psychedelic state you reach with no sleep - which concluded the video.

It was wonderful to work with Rebekka - though we were both an absolute beginners at editing. We both knew the video already existed, we just had to find it. So we were very synchronize in the irrational floaty process it takes to create a thing already existing.
