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 new 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.

Global Wiring is the sculptural result of Fragmentin’s 2022 residency and their curious vision of a glacial archeological find from the future exposing underground elements of the obsolete and unnatural systems that supported our interconnected lives.
