Multimedia artist Julia Calfee spent months living underneath the Lanta glacier, Switzerland, at 2,100 meters above sea level in rudimentary conditions to understand and preserve the images and sounds of the melting glaciers as they disappeared before her eyes. The final selection of images transcends the subject to portray the elements of this constantly changing nature. Equally powerful are her audio recordings which she presents in the form of a vinyl record. A Glacier's Requiem, exquisitely designed and presented, is both a visual and audio monument to the ice giants of this world.
