For 69˚S. Jessica created 3 large-scale icebergs that were designed around the concept of a 3D topographical map. Ernest Shackleton set out to be the first to cross the continent of Antarctica, mapping being an integral part of the expedition.
The icebergs were made from a recyclable Tyvek and were lit from within.
At the top of the show they began on the floor, each with a single red rope attached to the apex and as the story is summoned they very slowly rise up and remain standing until the climactic scene at the end where they make a final descent or “melting”.
There was also an 18’ boat that was inspired by the boat building process as well as the skeleton of a whale, oddly very similar to one another. It consisted of a series of ribs and three masts and at the climactic moment of the ship being crushed by the ice, the ship, ultimately a giant puppet, collapsed in 3 stages all from engineered motors controlling this movement.
