in the boulders


Temporary intervention in front of the glacier Morteratsch in canton of Grisons, Switzerland.
A reflectorised body has been put in front of the glacier. Because the cube has been covered with mirrors it reflects the surrounding mountains and boulders and at the same time it is swallowed up by the environment.

Synthetic mirrors, OSB wood panels
(3.60m x 2.40m x 2.40m)

The intervention took place during summer 2004 on the occasion of transit.engiadina – a coproduction of transit.graubünden and the association NAIRS, ART E CULTURA IN ENGIADINA.
