Archived: Antarctica

Part of Auckland Arts Festival 2017

Antarctica - while you were sleeping is a free installation celebrating the pristine scenery of the awe-inspiring ice continent. For three nights, as the sun sets over Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland’s most iconic building will become the canvas for a large scale projection of a majestic Antarctic iceberg.

Visual artist Joseph Michael, in collaboration with composer Rhian Sheehan, has created a cinematic spectacle like no other – a one-to-one scale of an Antarctic iceberg projected on the surface of the mighty Auckland Museum, complete with sound score.

In this unique world premiere, audiences will hear ice crack and drip, and see water fall, as they circumnavigate the Museum, which will be engulfed in images of the rare and sublime world of icebergs.

See Antarctica - while you were sleeping at Auckland Museum from 24 to 26 March as part of Auckland Arts Festival.
