Mutatis Mutandis

Created by Kip Haaheim, associate professor of music, Nolan Lem, electrical engineering student, and Tristan Telander, graphic designer, Spencer Museum of Art, Mutatis Mutandis explores the perception of time and its relationship to glaciological change in the form of a mixed media installation.

Visitors will experience the movement of glaciers through sound and visual imagery. The installation utilizes recorded sounds of glaciers, which have been manipulated using computer software. Data collected by CReSIS researchers has been used to create information graphics, which line the walls of the main hall at The Commons. A video display of this graphic information adds a third channel for experiencing and considering glaciological activity.

Mutatis Mutandis is a collaborative work that draws from expertise across disciplines, including the KU School of Music, the KU School of Engineering, the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), and the Spencer Museum of Art.
