The Color of Ice: Photographs of Ancient Ice Cores
with Dirk Hobman, Artist and Photographer
The attached photograph is of 29,000 year-old ice from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet that has not been altered or enhanced in any way. How is this possible? Join us to find out!
Ice, like photography, has the remarkable ability to stop time. Researchers have tapped into this phenomenon by drilling ice cores deep into the polar ice caps. The Color of Ice carries viewers on a journey of the imagination, traveling through over 200,000 years of earth’s past, and between both poles. Along the way, logic and emotion, utility and beauty, science and art, and even space and time merge to one in an unexpected world of ice.
