The natural environment is often something we cannot control, yet we use descriptive language of the environment to create an embodied response for abstract ideas. Politicians, the media– even our everyday conversations– use these metaphors to create visceral reactions like fear, anxiety, or vindication in an audience. Ideas and concepts are intentionally evoked with this language. In the collaborative vinyl installation Tip of the Iceberg, artists Amanda Maciuba, Jen Morris, and Jessica Tam create a conversation about the use of metaphors in daily life. They question how concepts are created and normalized in our experience through the use of language.
