The circumpolar region of the Arctic is the fastest warming place on earth. Working with data from the Permafrost research group at Alfred-Wegener-Institut Potsdam and the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, the Sono-Choreographic Collective undertook an artistic scientific project titled ‘Common Grounds’, on embodied permafrost data sonification – a collaboration between climate research, sonic arts and science communication, harnessing the theatrical apparatus.
In this participatory lecture concert, the collective will unpack aspects of their work in ‘Common Grounds’, presenting some of the methods they developed for listening, sensing and understanding climate change from an embedded perspective. These include various scaling techniques that come together to establish mental-mergings, giving access to sensing planetary phenomena and thus connecting the macro-global perspective with the microcosms of individual participants.
