Entry Description

On a recent expedition to Antarctica we recorded the individual "voices of icebergs". This resulting sounds and imagery will be used to project one to one scale icebergs on prominent buildings across the globe to show the power and scale of this vast frozen land, helping to reignite our primal bond with nature and provide a tangible connection to the natural world.
