In his three-part work, the artist addresses the consequences of climate change. For his video film, he scanned the Rabiusa Delta with a drone as it enters the Reinschlucht. Visitors can watch the film live in nature on their mobile device at seven locations in the valley, which are among to the most endangered in the canton. Panels with a QR code leading to the film online have been set up. A second intervention is a slide presentation of a rock face at Safien Platz, which, mounted on three municipal vehicles, travels daily through the valley. The third part consists of 14 “stone drawings” which will be created in the Carnusatobel over the summer and will be exhibited at the ILEA at Berghotel Alpenblick after the Biennale. A part of the work can also be seen in the parallel Bregaglia Biennial.
