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. Using certain digging techniques, he extracted soil samplers while explored the ecological network in interaction with the permafrost thawing process. Permafrost is, in some way, a bioindicator of the both atmospheric temperature and social dynamics of current times; a trace of impermanence from a distant latitude. A geo-somatization that reveals a dispossession, an epochal swerve.
