Splash, Stress & Elasticity

Saturday September 28

Humans & their space. The conversation stitches together topics such as migrational patterns, Neoliberal Capitalism, and the seasonal overpopulation that occurs throughout the tourist season in Lofoten. It explores notions of pressure and tension, and the infrastructures that attempt to cope with these rhythmic and cyclic movements.
