ICEBERG PERFORMANCE

Length: 4:38 minutes (looping)
August 10, 2007
The Factory: Hamilton Media Arts Centre

The video was projected on the wall and into a block of melting ice during the ritualistic, performance installation over a 3.5 hour period. The artist gathered up the ice water and offered support to the wall projection Iceberg, turned at a point in the video and poured the ice water into a memory vessel surrounded by memorial candles.

The video performance is hypnotic and deceptively calming while still illustrating the dangers of southern Canadian climate change activity on the Arctic Icebergs. The video was shot around Monumental Island, Nunavut and Hamilton ON.
