VOICES FOR THE FUTURE (UNITED NATIONS BUILDING NYC)

VOICES FOR THE FUTURE is an audio-visual collaboration between artist Joseph Michael, composer Rhian Sheehan, and Project Pressure. For three nights on the eve of the 2019 Climate Action Summit, the UN Building in New York will be illuminated with large scale projections of an iceberg, and soundscapes including the voices from six young advocates, including Greta Thunberg, delivering messages about the nature of the crisis, and the actions that can and must be taken. The installation also featrues music by Brian Eno.

Conceived by artist Joseph Michael, after visiting Antarctica in 2016, he set about creating an immersive artwork that would transform large well-known buildings into life-sized icebergs, so people could temporarily visit and feel for themselves the icebergs crack, shift and breathe around them.
