WATER (Hexa)

Claudia Müller & Matías Labbé (CL)

This axis exhibits a project developed by artists Claudia Müller and Matías Labbé, with glaciologist Francisco Aguirre and biologist Héctor Ortiz. Through images and sound, Hexa materializes a selection of data related to the retreat of the Schiaparelli Glacier, located in the Magallanes Region, such as fluctuations in energy, changes in water level, and speed of the ice flow.

The retreat of the glacier is part of a process that makes the chain of life visible, not only showing how those phenomena are reflected on the large scale of the southern landscape, but also the more subtle transformations that generate the conditions for the emergence of a particular flora and fauna.
