Through cartographic investigations these works explore the characteristics of vibrations in relation to the sound of calving glaciers. Glacial calving occurs when large chunks of ice break away from a glacier. This event is accompanied by a large cracking or booming sound. Through scientific investigations it is understood that there are three different types of glacial ice loss, each with their own specific sound signature: Sliding Sub Aerial, Submarine Event and Typical Subaerial Event. 

 

Performing the meditative process of travelling through these soundscapes on paper with pencil, the artist reflects on impermanence, radical change and adaptation.
