Overview

For Nuit Blanche, M.A.P. is retrofitted to encourage audience engagement. Fog runs through the installation, permeating the square; LEDs animate the piece and create an optical illusion suggesting sea smoke over a rippling ocean; and a custom audio piece using environmental sounds captured in Nunavut and set against an energetic beat supports the spirit of the all-night event.

The result is an instagram-friendly piece that encourages thoughtfulness about the climate change, first evident in the arctic.
