For three nights, as the sun sets over the domain, Auckland's War Memorial Museum  will become a blank canvas for the 360 degree projection of  a life size iceberg, to showcase Antartica. Kathryn Ryan talks to visual artist Joseph Michael who captured the footage in a month-long expedition to the frozen continent in 2015.  ANTARCTICA: while you were sleeping, is a collaboration with the Auckland Arts Festival and Auckland Museum. The three night installation is free and open to anyone to come and watch the 45 minute loop. There are also two talks accompanying the exhibition, an artist talk on Friday March 24, and on Saturday March 25 there will be a panel discussion on climate change in partnership with the Deep South Challenge.
