CRYOSPHERE is a compilation of still images from NASA, displaying changes in the frozen components of the Earth system between 1975-2019. These melting changes are emphasized as a painterly motion echoing the sound of melting icebergs, that arctic explorers recorded several years ago. CRYOSPHERE mirrors the rapid warming of our climate accompanied by an escalating version of Vivaldi's 'Winter' (first movement) from 'The Four Seasons' violin concertos. Please note!
