If libraries and archives have become the means for storing human history, where are geological histories stored? A frozen archive of geological and climatic records exists inside glaciers and ice sheets. This show looks at how scientists are able to use ice to decipher climatic and atmospheric histories. It asks what role the polar regions play in the popular imagination, and how artists both store and form our image of the poles.
Featuring: Dr. Emilie Capron, Paleoclimatologist at British Antarctic Survey; Esther Leslie, Professor in Political Aesthetics at Birkbeck University; Professor Chris Wainwright, Head of Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges, and member of Cape Farewell; Stephanie Millard, Exhibition Project Leader at the Science Museum.
