The project series "Call me!" researches sounding signals of nature phenomena caused by climate change. Telecommunications technology is used to establish a real-time acoustic connection. For the participant, active calling provides the possibility of individually experiencing locations normally unreachable and mostly neglected by headline news.
Pure information is not the main issue here, much more important is the individual emotional contact created by listening live to the sounds, unobtruded by any visuals.
"CALLING THE GLACIER" is a direct telephone connection to a glacier. A microphone installed on site transmits sounds from nature, directly and without editing, to the caller. You hear flowing water of varying intensity, sporadic cracking and other sounds, which a 'living glacier' utters with the change of seasons.
The film documents one phase of installing "Calling the Glacier" at the Pasterze, the largest glacier of Austria.
