2058: the first September without ice
This installation investigates the natural world and the key elements of survival on our planet. Humans play a role in accelerating changes in Earth's climate. One effect of this is increased warming in the polar regions resulting in elevated melting of glacial ice. 2058: the first September without ice seeks to continue to bring awareness to climate change issues through an installation of an abstractly interpreted icebergs. Numerous scientific models predict September 2058 as a reasonable estimate for there to no longer be any ice given current climate change data. The icebergs are dynamic during the day and at nighttime gain a new identity as color changing LEDs dynamically interact with acrylic facets behaving as light filters. The top section of the icebergs are an open frame to conceptually represent an outline or skeleton of what the iceberg once was, or possibly what it should be, if human climate interference were absent. 2058: the first September without ice is a visually stunning installation that thrives in both daytime and nighttime environments.
