Iceberg Floating By, East Greenland, August 23, 2006

Still photography is maybe not the best medium for expressing the horror of climate change in the Arctic. For those of us living in more temperate regions, the gloomy sight of glaciers breaking apart is tempered by the basic fact that glaciers look really cool (and also kind of fake) no matter what they’re doing. Photographs by German photographer Olaf Otto Becker and Shinnecock artist Camille Seaman are visually striking but don’t invite despair. More immediately terrifying is Jacob Kirkegaard’s sound installation, a pitch-black trick that replicates the feeling of standing on a cracking iceberg. You’ll find yourself instinctively avoiding the center of the room.
