Antarctic Lecture: The Color of Ice: Photographs of Ancient Ice Cores
Tuesday, November 19

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. Please join us as artist and photographer, Dirk Hobman, shares a remarkable story of ancient ice centered around the National Science Foundation Ice Core Facility, a largely unknown laboratory in our own backyard.
