Merging the tumultuous Antarctic Sound with the MFA's architecture generates a sea-level waterline one-story high within the museum. 

Viewers can navigate along the edge, peer over, or be encircled by the 65 foot long curve, along with experiencing it from under (the) water.

Edge of the Current: Antarctic Sound (2019) - "Designed specifically for the unique architecture of this gallery, this projection features the tumultuous waters of the Antarctic Sound. By superimposing these moving images on human-built structures, Friedman contrasts our relationships with natural and constructed environments. The installation activates and draws attention to the architectural elements in I.M. Pei’s modernist design for the Linde Family Wing, while it reminds us—through the unrelenting power of the ocean—that climate change and rising sea levels will impact not only Antarctica, but all of us on this planet."
