Her intimate relationship with the island has led to a multidisciplinary series of works, including books, drawings, sculpture, texts and photographs.

Located in a converted library building on a promontory overlooking the ocean in Stykkishólmur on Icelands west coast, Vatnasafn/Library of Water incorporates Horns abiding interest in water and weather, reflection and illumination, and the relation of these phenomena to the fluidity of human identity. The installation houses 24 glass columns containing local glacier water that reflect outside weather conditions onto a rubber floor embedded with weather-related adjectives. It also functions as a community space, a writers studio and an oral archive of local weather reports.

An introduction by co-director of the London-based nonprofit Artangel, James Lingwood, surveys Horns substantial body of Iceland-related work alongside essays by critics Briony Fer and Adrian Searle, a selection of weather reports and writings by Horn, inspired by her experience of the enigmatic island.
