A short video I shot and edited, from a larger project "Cold Coast Archive", a collaboration with Signe Lidén and Annesofie Norn. Both the video and the larger project use the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, the most robust food-crop seed archive on Earth, buried in a frozen mountainside, on the arctic island of Spitsbergen, as a starting point for investigations into and extrapolations from the broader meaning of a remote landscape of contingency and preparedness. Deep time, Disaster planning, Geopolitical speculation, and climate prediction, are recurring themes for both the place and the project.
