Prototype multimedia installation–part science, part music, part art–that captures an ongoing and precarious transition in the history of our planet: anthropogenic climate change. The installation is a groundbreaking, thought-provoking, and compelling multi-sensory experience that takes its inspiration from Henry Pollack’s book, A World Without Ice. ArtsEngine funding supports the creation of a take-away version of the large installation.
