In the Hyper Arctic Zone, a region in the very far north artificially warmed and cooled by machine, two young dilettantes seek artistic inspiration and the meaning of life in the shadow of an early greenhouse gas capture site created to combat runaway climate change—air is converted to thousand foot towers of diamond called DIAMOND SPIRES. Their quest for artistic truth leads them to discover a sinister object in an underground laboratory, altering their attention span for two weeks of their lives.

Diamond Spires, the new novel by multidisciplinary artist Peter Bjorndal, is part of a solo art exhibition titled Physical Digital Bourgeoisie Street Art & Poetry for Untrained Neural Networks, both Suspended in 103 Trillion Carat Diamond at The Baroque Room in St Paul, Minnesota. The exhibition grapples with themes such as the romanticization of technological advancement, while at the same time tries to show the layperson actual pragmatic steps they can take to make sure their future robotic assistant doesn’t beat them to death. Among other things, Diamond Spires recontextualizes the exhibition’s visual art into a vision of the future which tries to predict how humanity's contemporary scientific and ecological problems will resolve, and what that means for people simply living life.
