Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir makes interactive constellations, a group or cluster of related things, creating a dialog between audio sculptures and video. Her projects have included fireworks made out of sound sensitive cold cathode lights, a frozen puddle in the middle of the summer, pop-up igloos, wishing wells and magic.

In 1999 she received a MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles. In 1998 she received a Fellowship to attend Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine.
