Abstract

As the outcome of both artistic and ethnographic work related to the Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard, this essay focuses on the relationship between experience and mediation of place, as simultaneous and mutually dependent processes of the everyday. I will discuss this based on my travels to Svalbard between 2010 and 2014, while approaching Svalbard as a tourist destination and popular setting for visually-driven narratives of the Arctic. However, while we are familiar with photographic representations of the Arctic terrain as a frozen wilderness, how can we understand the production of image-spaces at the level of the body? And, how can this be explored with a particular focus on bodily presence in conjunction with technology? These questions drives the essay's critical reflection of the landscape as image in the everyday.
