Climate change soundtrack

Yes, you read that right: a climate change soundtrack. Today, I gave to this Kickstarter project, which is a collaboration between the Natural Resource Defense Council and an artist collective known as Luftwerk. Here's what it's all about:

White Wanderer, an immersive public art installation by Luftwerk, takes inspiration from the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica, which broke off into the Wendell Sea in July 2017. Using real life recordings of the sounds and frequencies of melting and moving glaciers, the artists will create a haunting and contemplative soundtrack of climate change few have heard. 

These incredible glacier sounds will accompany a scaled representation of the 120-mile crack in the Larsen C ice shelf, which will be positioned directly onto the building façade at 2 N. Riverside Plaza in Chicago to help people imagine the scale and scope of climate change. Each day, 30,000 people pass through the plaza, making it an ideal location for a public art installation.

I hope I'll be able to visit Chicago this fall.
