Take a Look Below Greenland's Ice Sheet | Omega

Let your imagination soar more than 2 miles deep and 112,000 years back through climate history in this video of images from the Greenland Ice Sheet. 

In this art exhibit, Omega’s creative director Kathleen Laucius describes 8 ethereal, abstract photographs, out-takes from artist Peggy Weil's film 88 Cores, that were on display at the Omega Center for Sustainable Living through December 2019.

Weil gained access to the National Science Foundation Ice Core Facility in order to photograph the ice cores, which are drilled from ancient glaciers. These paleo thermometers offer a record of the climate conditions at the time of formation, including local temperatures, volcanic activity, solar activity, and the chemical composition of the atmosphere, including greenhouse gas concentrations.
