Jessica Ramm, Bucket-head Whiteout Scenario
Jessica Ramm’s performance invites you to observe a training exercise, which begins like this: “Imagine a frozen ice-bound valley – you within it; and these people next to you – they are your new colleagues recently arrived at the scientific research station where you intend to gather information on how human activity is altering even the most remote ecosystems. Next to you is an emergency shelter of corrugated metal and you are armed with a bucket and a rope. Conditions can change in an instant here at the South Pole; the sun is shining now but distant cloud indicates a weather front building on the horizon. You are here to prepare for the unfortunate event that a team member has gone missing in a Category 1 ice-storm.”
This event will take place via Zoom, with a scheduled break. Attendees will be able to ask questions via the chat function.
June 17th 10 am
