Permafrost

 At random intervals the Perma part of the sign starts to flicker and switch-off as if it's going to break soon. The piece is a commentary on the deteriorating state of the Earth’s permafrost (which covers a very large part of north America and North Asia). The continuing thawing of the permafrost is greatly accelerating the global warming and all negative consequences stemming from it.
