Songs of Ice brings together the work of Michael Waterman and Jesse Stewart, two Ottawa-based interdisciplinary artists who have a shared passion for sonic exploration. In this exhibition, they explore the sonic properties of ice in both solid and melting forms while creating a two-way interaction between an outdoor geodesic dome and an indoor exhibition area at NAISA. Elements of the work will be developed through a two-day workshop with students from the South River Public School.Visitors are invited to make music with the delicate ice instruments, but please be gentle. For added enjoyment there is Glacialis, a video documenting performances by Jesse Stewart using ice instruments.
