Rune Peitersen - RAABJERG
|Publisher||Jap Sam Books|
‘Raabjerg’ emerges from the changing landscape of northern Jutland in Denmark. Due to climatological shifts and the extraction of resources by humans, the landscape has gradually altered over time. Attempts have also been made to “restore” and “re-establish” the natural situation. The book’s narrative focus is on the violent sand drift which has occurred here between the 16th and 19th centuries; how it manifested and completely transformed a once fertile region into a barren wasteland. After two centuries of struggle, humans have “succeeded” in re-transforming the landscape into a controlled state. With this project, Rune Peitersen asks: How do you preserve transition?
