Overview

Iceberg is a playful immersive art piece that consists of a series of illuminated aluminum arches that each produce a particular sound. Arranged as a tunnel, the arches beckon visitors to enter, listen to and play this giant organ, whose notes and light travel from end to end of the musical corridor.

As visitors explore the arches, motion sensors inside detect their movements, triggering changes to the lighting and sounds and bringing the iceberg to life. Human activity “warms up” these ice monuments and transforms their original nature into a visual and auditory symphony.
