Pat worked collaboratively with poet Liz Cashdan and sound artist Jessica Rowland for the whole of August in a remote corner of Iceland. Using a theme of digital notebooks they recorded their impressions - visuals, words, sounds.
The most complete collaborative piece made during the residency was ‘Skagastrond’. While Pat was working on the visuals, using drawings and photos, Jess worked on the sound sequence, using natural sounds, flute music and Liz reading her poem. The community itself became involved by contributing their autographs and voices which were later incorporated into the work.

In the following two years a number of books evolved. The most ambitious was a unique two volume edition of all the images and poems, Iceland Stories. A selection of smaller collages and poems are also to be found in 'Iceland Notes',
A new version of 'Iceland Stories' has been published by Millhouses Books in 2012 as a soft back book, then as an enhanced ebook.
