The installation ‘Permafrost’ made to highlight the growing concern in the fight against climate change. Permafrost is a permanently frozen layer beneath the earth’s surface which consists of rock and soil. This phenomenon has often been referred to as the ‘sleeping giant’ of climate change. As global temperatures rise, the once always-frozen ground starts melting, exposing historical information, including DNA, microbes and ancient fossils.
