While calvings naturally occur, global warming is causing increased calving frequency. This tiled video projection displays up to ten videos simultaneously, sampled from over 50 YouTube videos which document ecotourists’ experiences of glacier calvings. Each time the glaciers calve and crash into the water below, the tourists surprisingl…
