Requiem for Polar Regions by Lou Shephard for Art in the Open

Antarctic ice, image by Lour SheppardRequiem for Polar Regions is a project developed by Halifax-based artist Lou Sheppard, and while this project is emotional, it is also based on scientific data. 

Sheppard began observing the coastline of Antarctica, tracking the rate of movement (or rather, shrinking) of the polar ice along the coast, and inserting these jagged edges into musical notation, assigning notes for each point of the coastline. Collaborating with a computer programmer (Kenny Lozowski), and working with data gathered by the University of Colorado’s National Snow and Ice Data Centre, Sheppard created a program that composes a musical score to represent each day's shifting polar ice in Antarctica. The work, accompanied by an animation, has been presented in the Antarctic Biennial, and in the Antarctic Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale.

During Art in the Open 2018 (August 25), Requiem for Polar Regions, will have its Atlantic Canadian debut in the sanctuary at The Kirk of St. James. All are invited to take a moment to experience this work, and to listen to the haunting musical score of melting sea ice, perhaps while contemplating our own fragile coastline.
