Lia Forslund & Franek Wardynski: K – I WISH TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU

Dark Side opposite Tenna – GPS: 46.7320732, 9.3505766
Sunny Side above Tenna  – GPS: 46.7468102, 9.3348528Main - Franek Wardynski and Lia Forslund

What if the mountains had a conversation? Across the Safiental Valley the Dark Side is addressing the Sunny Side using the International Code of Signals. Through a dialogue, the Dark Side expresses concerns for climate change while the Sunny Side appears detached. Can two mountains performing, become a catalyst for change?
