"White Wanderer" takes inspiration from the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica, which broke off into the Wedell Sea in July 2017, forever altering the landscape of the continent. Using real life recordings of the sounds and frequencies of calving icebergs, along with satellite imagery of the 120-mile Larsen C crack, Luftwerk brings this remote place to life to deepen public understanding of the connection between climate change and sea level rise.
The exhibition will be open Apr 4 – Jun 1, 2018 in the Atrium Gallery at the Granoff Center. There will be an opening reception on Apr 5 at 6:30 pm in the Atrium Gallery at the Granoff Center. Free and open to the public.
This installation is organized in association with the BAI symposium “Polar Opposites: Creative Interventions in the Arctic and Antarctica.” "Polar Opposites" is part of "WeatherProof: Arts, Humanities and Sciences Explore the Environment," an integrated suite of activities among four other University programs.
