If Someone Asks This Is Where I’ll Be

Burying blood samples in a glacier, 2013.

Similaun Glacier

In 2013 Viktor Matic and me collected blood samples of some of our friends in Austria and Northern Italy (Alto Adige). We took them up to the Similaun Glacier, the place where the famous ice-mummy ‘Ötzi’ was originally found after the glacier thawed. We looked for a still intact part of the glacier featuring a deep crevace and threw the blood samples deep into the ice.
