Auksalaq, the Inupiaq Eskimo word for “melting snow”, is a telematic, multimedia work that explores global climate change from a northern geographic and cultural perspective. Using distance technology, live music, dance, movement, visual arts and commentary, the work creates a rich counterpoint of media linking great distances. Auksalaq will integrate artistic expression, scientific information and social/political commentary to present an interactive, multi-dimensional experience that embodies relevant complex cultural and empirical processes. The piece illuminates scientific analysis as well as cultural and political issues surrounding global climate change.
