Project Description: Iceberg Project X
DER founder/Composer/Ethnomusicologist Cristian Amigo and Mathematician/Computer Scientist Bridget Baird lead Iceberg Project X (working title), an ecologically themed collaborative multimedia installation art piece. The basic ecological unit of study and creativity will be the iceberg, and live tracking of iceberg flows through software generously supplied by the US Coast Guard and Connecticut College. We will examine the iceberg as material, as data, as metaphor, as personal and collective allegory, and as a potent symbol for climate change. Ultimately, each “iceberg” will be associated with an live, evolving cluster of multimedia elements (designed by students), and interact with other “icebergs” in a software generated installation environment.
