Beyond the Nation: Contemporary Challenges for Northern and Arctic Landscapes
Janike Larsen, an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Urbanism and Landscape at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, will discuss her research on the landscapes in the sub arctic. Her talk will situate these landscapes in terms of mining, oil supply and energy supply, pollution and social development. The structuring theme will be geologic vs human agency in shaping the surface of the earth coupled with a reflection on how we experience and recognize form – on the desire to make thing resemble what we already now vs the ability to be overwhelmed.
