Abstrakt

This study looks upon how different epistemologies reassess knowledges and histories, and how different fields of interest and ways of knowing can look at landscapes in similar ways and intersect as well as reveal fascinating facts about landscapes and place. Likewise, how local knowledges and stories are knowledges of how to produce and reproduce a locality. It is this identification of knowledge space we look upon to answer how different perceptions of a geological feature in the middle of the Godthåbsfjord, West Greenland, shapes an assemblage about people passing by and their activities around it. Just as well, we examine how this feature has changed within the eye of the beholder due to alternations in cognitive structures and frames within social-economy. Knowledge space is a result of social practice and particular interest; a knowledge space which has been lost but today reappears because of a new geological epistemology and logic bringing it back to life.
