Waiting for a Break

Ice on Lake Erie from Julia Christensen's Waiting for a Break

A partnership between a multmedia artist and Stone Laboratory illuminates the importance of ice for Lake Erie's health.  With the help of scientists at Stone Laboratory, Julie Christensen place seven cameras to livestream footage of the lake at points on South Bass and Gibraltar Island. 

The footage has been shared via a kiosk in downtown Cleveland and in art galleries to draw more attention to the importance of our connection with the Great Lakes.  Christensen shared that the while working on this project she learned the importance of ice to prevent evaporation and possibly reduce harmful algae blooms.
