The publication looks back to the project untitled, produced for the 2005 Reykjavík Arts Festival in collaboration with Anne Kockelkorn, Darri Lorenzen and the design duo Neulant van Exel. With her team, Hansdóttir built a 500-foot tunnel-like construction inside Edinborg House, an edifice from the 1890s in Ísafjörður. A passageway of disillusionment zigzagging through a completely white interior awash in monochrome lighting guided the visitors in changing directions: to the right, left, right, up, down, left, right, and, finally, back out. This visual spatial experience was expanded by a sonic pattern that was based on sound-recordings from within the tunnel and emmited via surround sound systems. Sensory deprivation and the disorientation induced by the meandering trajectory made the installation a screen onto which the visitors projected their own thoughts. 
Long Place presents the first comprehensive documentation of the installation. The architectural historian Anne Kockelkorn and the literature scholar and philosopher Björn Quiring contributed essays on Hansdóttir’s sensitive art.
