//ghosting* Glacier (here meaning create, compose, record, rewrite, communicate)
is a collaborative and interdisciplinary art project about the glacier.
the project investigates the human/place relationship in a time of climate change and has resulted in an audio-visual work composed, written and created at/in/by the glacier.
the project uses artistic approaches to investigate how we continuously affect and are affected by our interactions with place.
by entangling and blending the boundaries between glacier and human
we investigate and explore the continual influences by the presences of bodies and beings, in a coalition of human and more-than-human wills.
the project address the subconscious and emotional defence-mechanisms many experience in relating to and dealing with climate change. how do these mechanisms manifest themselves in our expression, in our ideas and in our contact with a melting glacier?
the project was shown on June 8th of 2022 at Galleri Schaffersgate in Oslo, Norway and at Arne Næss Symposium August 26th 2022.
the project is exhibiting a small exhibition at Norwegian Bioart Arena from August 18th 2022 to September 18th 2022.

“The women I knew portrayed glaciers as conscious and responsive to humans. Glaciers, they insisted, are willful, sometimes capricious, easily excited by human intemperance but equally placated by quick-witted human responses. Glaciers engage all the senses.
