Finding traces: imagining the landscape of the past covered in a great weight of ice

Stockholm has been expanding: its population has grown as well as the area it occupies. It has also been rising up since the end of the last ice-age; the great weight of ice has been lifted and the land is springing back to a state of equilibrium. I walked the city, examining the layers of urban expansion, collecting materials and researching their origins.
