The Wildcards. Transforming (post) oil landscapes
MetadataShow full item record
The oil industry in Norway has changed the natural geography of the coastline during the last fifty years. By the time this resource comes to an end the general environment will face transformations due to global warming and climate change. It will also cause these territories to be abandoned, leaving behind an abundance of artificial landscapes and unused areas. This project explores and speculates scenarios where these future circumstances are seen as opportunities to activate the hinterland landscapes beyond the oil refineries and reuse the sites. By investigating local cultivation, national climate predictions and global shifts in edible landscapes, this project suggests an introduction of grape fields as a new tomorrow for the chosen coastlines.
