If a glacier melts and retreats on the mountains or crumbles in the Arctic and there are no witnesses, it is never really existed?
In the Spring of 2015, for the first time ever, Alex will live on the tip of an iceberg, carved from a glacier in the North West of Greenland. Clinging to that piece of drifting ice, Alex will spend up to twelve months to witness the last phase of its long life, while managing with a constantly changing environment. As the iceberg will get smaller and less stable Alex Bellini will have to adapt himself to the new situation. In order to survive for as long as possible, Alex Bellini will have to adapt his lifestyle and habits. This will be crucial to getting people to think, to make parallels with everyday life characterised by a total lack of willingness to change and adapt. Adrift has the purpose of raising awarness and bringing contribution to the long discussed global warming and climate change theories, inspire students all over the World with educational programmes and inspire to live more sustainably.
