Information on the activity

Take a stroll inside a glacier

Icebergs are ancient ice formations shaped by time and the elements, and they make unique sounds. As water seeps into its cracks and crevasses, an iceberg resonates like an enormous pipe organ, its tones shifting and transforming as the ice melts. Inspired by these colossal natural musical instruments, the Iceberg installation consists of a series of illuminated metal arches that each make a particular sound. Arranged to form a tunnel, the arches beckon you to enter and listen to – and even play – the giant organ.

The sounds and light travel from one end of the musical corridor to the other. Iceberg’s sound and light ambiance, evoking the pure far north, transform in response to your presence. Human activity warms the gargantuan ice blocks – a palpable sign of climate change – and transforms their original form into a visual and auditory symphony.
