Abstract (English)

'' Appealing simultaneously to the various meanings of the term “Subatlantic” - a climatic phase beginning 2500 years ago, as well as the submerged regions of the Atlantic - Ursula Biemann immerses her camera deep in oceanic waters to ponder upon the entanglements of geological time with that of human history. As the voiceover speaks the accounts of a scientist traversing the pan-generational timescales of the Subatlantic, we navigate through the mental and ecological dimensions of the melting Arctic icescapes. The speculative video-essay interweaves vast cinematic landscapes with documentary footage, science fiction poetry and academic findings to narrate a changing planetary reality.'' --
