The term tipping point refers to the great natural cycles in the ocean that are slowly changing until reaching a critical point where everything accelerates dramatically. A layer of water is contained by two glass plates. Two motors tilt the glass disc at barely visible angles. A large air bubble slowly changes shape and moves in the water. It tries to find a new balance under a map of the Arctic ice that is printed on the glass. A spotlight surrounds the installation like a sun. It projects a rotating shadow including water movement patterns that are not visible on the original disc.
