The exhibition results from integrating field data, remote satellite imagery, scientific analysis, and multimedia visual representation to document Arctic ice that is disappearing due to climate change. Through this work, they seek to make scientific data tangible, visceral, and experiential. They ask how artistic and creative practices can contribute to scientific endeavors while making scientific research visible to the public. Register here!
Doors will open at 6 p.m. on January 26 at the NAS Building, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.
"Arctic Ice: A Visual Archive" by Cy Keener, Justine Holzman, Ignatius Rigor, and John Woods is on view Sept. 15, 2022 - Feb. 15, 2023 in the Upstairs Gallery
