Using carbon fiber rods as sonic and visual elements that pick up the sounds of wind, generating harmonics, as well as other sounds of nature, IAP faculty Richard Lerman has created a three-channel sound/video installation recorded in the Arctic regions of Finland, Norway, Sweden and Russia. The piece explores issues of climate change and its effects in the Arctic. All the work was gathered using his self-built microphones along with a hydrophone.

Based in Bondi, Australia, guest artist photographer Andrew Worssam has taken a digital smartphone and mixed it with an analog pair of binoculars to create some quite unexpected photographs.

This production is for mature audiences only.
