The Verbier 3-D Foundation presents Global Wiring, a new site-specific sculptural work by Swiss art collective Fragmentin. The artists were invited for a one-month residency to become immersed in the local alpine environment to develop work responding to current debates referencing global topics of water and climate concerns, inspired by the materials, technologies and ecological knowledge sourced from the surrounding landscape of Verbier, Switzerland.

The artwork is part of the Obsology series (the artists’ neologism coming from a mix of the words obsolescence and archaeology), a visual research on the topic of Post-digital archaeology which takes the form of CGI images, generative videos and sculptures.

Retrieved from remaining icy landscapes of the Alps in an hypothetical future, frozen wiring and pipes found by ice drilling appear to be tangible proof of an era of hyper-connectivity. 

Preserved in a glacial-lacustrine layer, these samples extracted from the ground, provide us with unprecedented information on the technologies and underground infrastructures that were once installed and used under the surrounding Valais soil.
