Glaciologist provides sounds to Chicago art installation about icebergs

For the next month, these creaks will provide the soundtrack to an immersive public art installation along the Chicago River that makes it appear that the famed Art Deco building at 2 North Riverside Plaza has cracked in half, mimicking an iceberg.

    Glaciologist provides sounds to Chicago art installation about icebergs
    In 2000, UChicago Prof. Doug MacAyeal tracked the world's largest iceberg, called B-15, as it broke off from an ice shelf in Antarctica. MacAyeal placed seismic sensors into the iceberg that recorded the seismic groans created when the chunks scraped past each other.

  • Cityboy Couch miner in Rogers park for 67 years

    Thanks Pbsene, I've been riding my bike for over 40 years . I've had one accident. The trick is riding slow, stop at signs and lights and observe drivers . Look at the car doors and mirrors. I learned these tricks when I was a bike courier.

  • pbsene Local Business Owner, Tired American

    Well I've had a few scrapes but that comes with the territory. Good tips here, I also use bright flashing lights all the time and I whistle (hands-free) very loudly when I see someone that could possible door me or pull out in front of me. Now if we could just get some of the broken glass picked up...
