#ArsBioarctica
Ice and soil as an open skin layer
In March 2024, Jean Danton carried out a field study on permafrost in an area of peat mounts (palsas) around Kilpisjärvi. With certain digging techniques, he extracted samplers of soil material while explored the ecological role of various living beings in the permafrost thawing process. Permafrost is, in a certain way, a bioindicator of the atmosphere and social dynamics pulse from other latitudes. A trace of something else from the distance, and a time span of the impermanence of the earthly matter. A geologic somatization that reveals a dispossession, an epochal swerve.
