There are only a couple more days to enjoy Iceberg, a cool immersive and interactive installation on Broadway in the Garment District. ATOMIC3 and Appareil Architecture constructed the musical piece, which consists of a series of connected metal arches that emit blue and red light and the sounds of water dripping as people make their way through it; the more visitors in the work, and the faster they move, the more the lights change and the louder the sounds get, resulting in a warmer atmosphere. Created in collaboration with sound designer Jean-Sébastien Côté and interactive system designer Philippe Jean for a Montreal festival in 2012, Iceberg might look like a chic, Instagram-friendly tunnel, but it is also a reminder of the melting, calving polar ice caps and the damaging man-made effects of global climate change.
