Watch This Guy Transform Huge Buildings Into Icebergs

Immerse yourself in the pristine beauty of Antarctica’s landscape with this stunning installation from visual artist Joseph Michael. Projected onto the exterior of the Auckland War Memorial Museum, the multi-sensory experience is brought to life with Michael's beautiful imagery and the cracking, creaking sounds of the ice. With a score composed by Rhian Sheehan, Antarctica - While You Were Sleeping is a collision of nature and architecture that captures the grandeur of one of the most beautiful and remote places on Earth.

In this short film directed by Ben Vecauteren at Syrp, go behind-the-scenes with Joseph Michael on his four-year quest to bring Antarctica's icebergs to life in the city.
