DRIFT Collective is an artist group centered on the artists who joined an expedition observing drift ice. Drift ice, which starts from the Amur in Russia and floats to the sea of Shiretoko region in Hokkaido was originally a natural phenomenon witnessed in Shari, a fishing village, but is disappearing due to global warming. In 〈Drifting Scenery〉 the group presents the records of drift ice collected over the years, such as the scenery of drift ice witnessed in Shari, the sounds around the ice, and the image of Shari in the low season of drift ice. Through the scenery of drift ice that covers the Fire Road of ACC, visitors virtually experience the disappearing of drift ice. Through the work that records the natural phenomenon changing due to the climate crisis, the artist seeks to provide an opportunity to review the interrelation between human and nature.
