For their exhibition in Cleve Carney Art Gallery Luftwerk will be creating a sixty-foot long mural that merges the fundamental languages of morse code with that of color theory. Using the dots and dashes of the universal call for distress, S.O.S. , this work will stretch across the entire West wall of the gallery.
White Wanderer | Two Riverside Plaza
White Wanderer takes inspiration from the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica, which broke off into the Weddell Sea in July 2017 – forever altering the landscape of the continent. Using real life recordings of the sounds and frequencies of calving ice bergs, along with satellite imagery of the 120-mile Larsen C crack, Luftwerk brings this remote place to life to deepen public understanding of the connection between climate change and sea level rise. The project is the culmination of a yearlong collaboration with NRDC, with additional help from the University of Chicago.
White Wanderer will be on display at Two Riverside Plaza, Chicago IL Sept 7th – Oct 1st and at Navy Pier as part of EXPO CHICAGO from Sept 13 – Sept 17 in booth #829
