Chatter Marks is a journal of the Anchorage Museum, dedicated to creative and critical thinking about the Circumpolar North. The title Chatter Marks is inspired by a geological phenomenon—chatter marks are series of often crescent-shaped gauges chipped out of the bedrock as a glacier drags rock fragments underneath it. With North x North, we launched a digital version of the journal for continuing perspectives.
