InterANTARCTICA is a installation designed and led by Caitilin de Berigny and created by a team of artists and students from The University of Sydney. InterANTARCTICA provides a technological platform for the public to interact, experience and gain vital knowledge about climate change. The concept is focused on the largest ice mass on Planet Earth, Antarctica. Our motivation stems from an urgency to understand, what has been labelled humanity's greatest challenge and our greatest threat: climate change.
Entering the exhibition space, the viewer is surrounded by a three-screen video installation of the Antarctica landscape. The viewer hears Antarctic compositions, created by other viewers in real-time interaction. InterANTARCTICA relies on viewer-interaction, where the viewer controls and creates sound. By creating sound the viewer engages in an additional interaction by modifying a visualization. InterANTARCTICA helps viewers understand critical scientific data through a multi-sensory experience (sound, sight, touch).
