When two thirds of the earth’s surface is melting, we need to take account. We need to monitor and mobilize imaginaries of our fragility, our fluidity.
This long-term proposal calls for the Circumpolar North to be designated as an archive of how the planet is burning, how the cryosphere is melting.
Scientific Research Stations – which are part sentinels to this catastrophic shift, and part outposts to national claims of sovereignty – are reframed as a series of remote-sensing (museum) “rooms” at the end of the world as we know it. They form a distributed (intimate) infrastructure of change that we can access remotely.
At the interface between science fact and geopolitical posturing, this series of archival stores record, transmit and emit. They are our emissaries of a past and future foretold. They make change and climate action/inaction visible, audible, accessible: graphically tangible, albeit digitally recorded.
They are evidence, for the (personal/planetary) record.
