Artistic research on Svalbard (Spitsbergen), 2018
While sailing around Spitsbergen I am interested in the transience of the polar region. What is seen by scientists whom are concerned with vanishing landscapes?
My focus is on arctic exploitation and general natural processes. The archive of found materials leads to site-specific work; sculpture, installation, film and photography
