White Noise

How can we begin to grasp the significance of the disappearance of one of the world's largest archives, as it crumbles, shrinks, and melts before our eyes?

One of the world’s largest archives is fading at this very moment. The sound of the calving icebergs and the bright whirring of the glaciers remind me less of a breaking and more of an ongoing White Noise.

I created a series of circular spectrograms taken from the sound of the calving glaciers to be an engineered fingerprint of a specific time and place. For me, the emerging sound captures something of the dissonance of our time.
