Among the many reasons to force Kyla Cole into unthinkable temperatures and wind, reaching -23 centigrade, was to take advantage of the mysterious light in the Arctic in winter.
The da Vinci Bridge
But there was also of course the story, in this case part of “The Burn & the Scar,” and part of the movie “Assassin 62.” In the first, Kyla played the mankiller Ananda Shields, and in the second she played the troubled assassin Abbi Hendrix. The bridge connected these two stories.
The bridge is the only object constructed 100% according to da Vinci’s design. Like bicycle wheels propped up against one another, the bridge is a barely noticeable feature of the border between Norway and Sweden. Blue convinced Ananda Shields to travel in winter to visit this unique design. There was a story here, he thought. But it was the death of the love affair with Ananda that became the central theme of the trip, and he began plotting about making literary treasure out of Ananda’s heartbreak.
Here is Kyla posing in front of a silly art piece in howling conditions in Iceland. Blue will post more about this trip as he edits “Kyla Cole in Iceland,” the second chapter of his book “Kyla Cole and Me.”
