This Photo Friday, view images from “Vanishing Glaciers by Project Pressure,” a touring photographic exhibition being exhibited this week at the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change in Hong Kong.
This work written by Dana J. Graef first appeared last month on SAPIENS. As many glaciers throughout the world are retreating at faster rates, they have become powerful symbols of global warming. But glacial retreat is still an abstract idea for many people, which makes it easy to ignore. What tough questions should we be asking ourselves?
An upcoming exhibition at the Rowan University Art Gallery in Glassboro, New Jersey, will feature large-scale paintings and photographs that offer a striking look into the contrasting world of beauty and despair. Artist Diane Burko will have her work on display until April 21, 2018.
The newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Black Panther,” is set in the fictional Eastern African nation of Wakanda, which contains their exclusive metal vibranium, but does it contain glaciers?
In 2011, archaeologists came across a crumpled piece of cloth in the ice of Lendbreen Glacier. When examined, it turned out to be an incredibly well-preserved 1,700-year-old tunic that became the oldest piece of clothing found in Norway. Now it has been reconstructed.
Michael Kienitz, a photojournalist based in Madison, WI, has been collecting images of the vanishing glaciers in South East Iceland for the last five years. In this time, he has witnessed dramatic changes in the shape and size of the Icelandic glaciers. He describes his experience of documenting such changes in Iceland in this interview with GlacierHub.
In the mountainous region of Norway, glacier archaeologists have recently discovered over 2,000 artifacts. Through radiocarbon dating, they have reconstructed trends in intensity of reindeer hunting and civilization from 4000 CE.
This Photo Friday, view Zaria Forman’s painstakingly drawn, detailed pastel drawings that transport viewers to remote areas and showcase landscapes in flux.
Aslak Grinsted, a Danish geoscientist, has created a daily twitter feed, called Daily Glacier Bot, which features before and after images of individual glaciers. GlacierHub interviewed him on the techniques behind the bot, and on his reasons for developing it. He is seeking to promote understanding of climate change around the world.
