For three nights as the sun sets over the Domain, the Museum’s iconic building will become the canvas for a full-scale 360-degree projection of a majestic Antarctic iceberg.
Visual artist Joseph Michael has collaborated with composer Rhian Sheehan to create an immersive multi-sensory installation that translates the scale and awe of Antarctica. Listen to the ice crack and drip, creak and groan as colossal sections of ice calve off, set to a dramatic sound score.
A free, fully immersive visual and audio experience for an audience of all ages, while you were sleeping is a New Zealand first, and the largest project of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The show runs on a 45minute loop from 8.30pm until 11.00pm on Friday 24 March, Saturday 25 March and Sunday 26 March.
There will be a selection of food vendors available onsite, located at the North and South ends of the Museum.
Bring a blanket and thermos and settle in for the awe-inspiring ANTARCTICA – while you were sleeping, part of the last weekend of Auckland Arts Festival.
