As part of Maine-based photographer Shoshannah White's project CHATTERMARK, I was honored to produce an audio piece called ICE CORE, MEMORY OF THE PLANET (2017)
5 mins 14 seconds.
ICE CORE, MEMORY OF THE PLANET is based on an interview with Paul Mayewski, Director of the Climate Change Institute at University of Maine. Aside from being a badass explorer, Mayewski has led 55 expeditions to some of the remotest polar and high altitude reaches of the planet-and he says humans are profoundly changed the planet in major ways.
Shoshannah's CHATTERMARK project is a street-art initiative bringing imagery of the Arctic and melting glacial ice to the streets of Maine by injecting imagery of a continually changing Polar landscape into the busy rush of daily life as a reminder of new landscapes resulting from human impact, and a connection/disconnection we have with the world around us. Images are printed at mural scale and adhered to public, exterior walls with an all-natural binder meant to disintegrate with time and weather.
