⁣On the Furka Pass in Southern Switzerland, there is a small shop that carves an ice grotto into the nearby Rhône glacier and charges tourists to enter inside the blue ice. They have invested heavily in a thermal blanket to keep the ice grotto intact. However, after a few harsh winters on the mountain, the blanket is starting to disintegrate making it look like as if the glacier has been wrapped in a death cloak, preparing for the inevitability of its own disappearance.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Drop by Gallery Luisotti if you are in Santa Monica, California to see Shroud by @simonnorfolkstudio and @klausthymann.

⁣A new report from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) finds that around 1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction, many within decades, more than ever before in human history. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣To increase the policy-relevance of the Report, the assessment’s authors have ranked, for the first time at this scale and based on a thorough analysis of the available evidence, the five direct drivers of change in nature with the largest relative global impacts so far. These culprits are, in descending order: (1) changes in land and sea use; (2) direct exploitation of organisms; (3) climate change; (4) pollution and (5) invasive alien species. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣Since 1980, greenhouse gas emissions have doubled, raising average global temperatures by at least 0.7 degrees Celsius – with climate change already impacting nature from the level of ecosystems to that of genetics – impacts expected to increase over the coming decades, in some cases surpassing the impact of land and sea use change and other drivers. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣ “The Report also tells us that it is not too late to make a difference, but only if we start now at every level from local to global,” he said. “Through ‘transformative change’, nature can still be conserved, restored and used sustainably – this is also key to meeting most other global goals. By transformative change, we mean a fundamental, system-wide reorganization across technological, economic and social factors, including paradigms, goals and values.” ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣Image Outsider, 2013 by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣#projectpressure #climatechange #climateactionnow #extinctionrebellion #coreyarnold⁣

⁣The total area of the glacier cover in Hornsund Fjord where Corey Arnold went on an expedition with Project Pressure in year 2013 diminished by approximately 172 km2 from 1899–2010. The average glacier area retreat increased from a mean of 1.6 square kilometers per year to 3 square kilometers per year since 2000 according to a report from the same year. Large glacier systems with low slopes terminating in deeper waters are retreating faster than small steep glaciers terminating in shallower water. For this and several other reasons, glaciers of this particular area can be considered as more sensitive to climate than glaciers of other regions of the Svalbard archipelago.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Source: https://www.ice2sea.eu/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2011/08/064_popore-2013-00245.pdf⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Image: Hansbreen Light, Svalbard, 2013, by Corey Arnold ( @arni_coraldo )⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣#climatechange #coreyarnold #wedonthavetime #climateactionnow #projectpressure⁣

Glacier mass loss in Greenland has increased sixfold since the 1980s according to a study published yesterday in PNAS. The mass balance started to deviate from its natural range of variability in the 1980s. Greenland has raised sea level by 13.7 mm since 1972, half during the last 8 years. Scientists have reconstructed the mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet for the past 46 years by comparing glacier ice discharge into the ocean with interior accumulation of snowfall from regional atmospheric climate models over 260 drainage basins. - Image by @klausthymann - #climatechange #glaciermelt #projectpressure #klausthymann #greenland #landscapephotography

The aim of Project Pressure is to visualize climate change, using art as a positive touch point to inspire engagement and create behavioural change. The posters relate to vanishing glaciers to demonstrate the impact of climate change. Unlike wildfires, flooding and other weather events, glacier mass loss can be directly attributed to global climate change, and as such they are key indicators. The images by Edward Burtynsky, Simon Norfolk, Corey Arnold and Klaus Thymann are overlaid with surprising facts, providing an informative and unexpected journey for the viewer. - #wedonthavetime #projectpressure #climatechange #simonnorfolk

In the Himalayas, warming following the @ipcc scenario of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels would probably be even higher, at 2.1 °C, the Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment found. Across the world, glacier volumes are projected to decline up to 90 percent this century from decreased snowfall, increased snowline elevations and longer melt seasons. The report also touches on the phenomenon of elevation-dependent warming which means that higher latitudes amplify temperature changes like in the Arctic, as well as growing evidence that warming rates are greater at higher elevations. - Image from one of our expeditions in the area by @klausthymann - #glaciermelt #climatechange #projectpressure #klausthymann #ipcc #himalayas

Rising temperatures in the Himalayas, also called “The third pole”, will melt at least one-third of the region’s glaciers by the end of the century even if the world’s most ambitious climate change targets are met, according to the Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment report. If those goals are not achieved, and climate change continues at the current rate, the Himalayas could lose two-thirds of its glaciers by 2100. - One of the most complete studies on mountain warming, the Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment was put together over five years by 210 authors. The report includes input from more than 350 researchers and policymakers from 22 countries. - Image by @klausthymann - #climatechange #projectpressure #klausthymann #nepal #himalayas #glaciermelt

Since 2008 Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions around the world, and for the first time these works will be shown together as MELTDOWN. The selected artworks in MELTDOWN relate to vanishing glaciers to demonstrate the impact of climate change through various media. Unlike wildfires, flooding and other weather events, glacier mass loss can be 100% attributed to global temperature changes and as such, they are key indicators of climate change. The exhibition premieres at the Natural History Museum in Vienna on June 4th 2019. The second stop will be Horniman Museum and Gardens, London, opening the 23rd of November. Featured artists are: Corey Arnold (US), Michael Benson (DE), Adam Broomberg (ZA) & Oliver Chanarin (UK), Edward Burtynsky (CA), Scott Conarroe (CA), Peter Funch (DK), Noémie Goudal (FR), Adam Hinton (UK), Mariele Neudecker (DE), Simon Norfolk (NG), Christopher Parsons (UK), Toby Smith (UK), Emma Stibbon (UK) and Klaus Thymann (DK) #projectpressure #climatechange #meltdown

The New York Times reported about ”Greenland’s enormous ice sheet melting at such an accelerated rate that it may have reached a “tipping point” and could become a major factor in sea-level rise around the world within two decades, scientists said in a recently published study. The Arctic is warming at twice the average rate of the rest of the planet, and the new research adds to the evidence that the ice loss in Greenland, which lies mainly above the Arctic Circle, is speeding up as the warming increases. The authors found that ice loss in 2012, more than 400 billion tons per year, was nearly four times the rate in 2003.” Image by @klausthymann #climatechange #projectpressure #klausthymann #glacier #sealevelrise #landscapephotography

The glacier lake formed less than 10 years ago, and is a result of glacier recession and increased meting. Swiss glaciers have lost 2.5% of their volume this year, according to a report that dubbed 2018 "a year of extremes". Snow acts like a protective covering that prevents glaciers from melting. The peak saw no snowfall of more than 1cm between 17 May and 4 September - a first in the 81 years of record keeping, the report said. The heat and lack of precipitation "not only melted large quantities of winter snow (up to five metres on some glaciers), but also melted the ice," Matthias Huss, in charge of the Glacier Monitoring Network (GLAMOS), told AFP. If the planet continues warming at the same pace as today, he warned that "many of Switzerland's smaller glaciers will completely disappear". - Behind the scenes images from @simonnorfolkstudio and @klausthymann joint expedition for Project Pressure to Rhône Glacier earlier this year. - Thanks @fjallravenofficial for keeping the team warm and dry. - #climatechange #glacier #glaciermelt #norfolkthymann #projectpressure #fjallraven

Behind the scenes images from Norfolk + Thymann collaborative project Shroud. - A small part of the Rhône Glacier is covered with geo-thermal fabric which reduces melting by mimicing snow-cover. Because there is a small shop there that carves an ice grotto into the glacier and charges tourists to experience inside the blue ice, it has been worth their money attempting to stop the glacier’s retreat. This year's record-breaking temperatures have greatly contributed to the loss of a fifth of the glaciers' volume over the past decade according to a recent study published by the Swiss Academies of Science. - To create the unique look of the work Norfolk + Thymann shot at dawn and dusk when the light was flat and not very bright. ”We came up with a special light, using a helium balloon; top lit, sepulchral. I wanted to recreate the same light you get over a mortuary slab. There is something insane about trying to reverse the inevitable. It has only been done here because this is a working glacier. The gesture is as forlorn and doomed as the glacier itself ” says Simon Norfolk. - #climatechange #glacier #glaciermelt #norfolkthymann #projectpressure

The glaciers in Ecuador are receding due to climate change. We look at mountains and panoramas and we assume our surroundings are immutable and resilient, when we are in fact experiencing a rapid change in Earth’s landscapes. Project Pressure is collaborating with Emma Stibbon to see how she as an artist creates work inspired by the changing environment. With the glaciated sites in Ecuador Stibbon felt she wanted to say something about the extraordinary scenery but also point to the poignancy of the fact that the changes in the landscape will be witnessed within her own lifetime. The team travelled to Ecuador visiting multiple glaciers at high altitudes up to 5100 m where Stibbon created sketches and collected soil that was used to make pigment for the drawings she created in her studio upon returning. The “A Blank Canvas” project was made possible through a collaboration with Adidas TERREX. Klaus Thymann wrote and directed the film as well as created the still images. - #projectpressure #climatechange #emmastibbon #adidas #terrex #glacier

These effects are highlighted through his use of RGB tricolour separation, in which individual colour layers are recorded separately and then merged into a single image. Through his representation of the landscape, Funch aims to address humanity’s influence on nature.” Image: Peter Funch/Project Pressure

Taking inspiration from Paul Auster’s tale of a mountain explorer found preserved in ice Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin began to look at recovered objects that had been ‘rejected’ by receding glaciers. Exploring the notion of the glacier as a form of memory bank. The process was an ‘excavation of chance’: documenting preserved artefacts that have been revealed naturally as the glaciers diminish. Initial research has found that glacial archaeology is, in the wake of climate change, uncovering artefacts at an unprecedented rate. "We treated the glaciers as an archive which as a result of global warming are suddenly revealing artefacts that have for millennia been perfectly preserved in the stable, frozen mass. The objects reveal remarkable and intimate details of individual lives lived long ago but they also speak about the end of the fucking world in the very near future."

Michael Benson’s work sits exquisitely at the intersection between art and science—on the frontier. As an artist, writer and film-maker, the last decade has seen Benson stage numerous large-scale shows of planetary landscape photography. "The exhibition presents two prints composed from planetary archives, can you explain how these works are made? How do you start making such an image and what is the process behind it? In general, within my work, I take raw data from inter-planetary missions and I composite them to make colour images using different shots taken through different colour filters. These can then be stacked to make colour and then I use a mosaic technique to make wider field views. Really, what I’m doing is going into the raw data archives of inter-planetary missions, exploring within them and looking for extraordinary vistas. When it comes to the two earth images that will be exhibited at Unseen Amsterdam 2018, it was a somewhat different procedure. Each picture has its own unique challenges, it all depends on what the data is, it depends on if you have three colour filters, which can produce a true colour or a reasonably true colour image. So I don’t want to bore the listener with too much technical detail. The images are usually quite far from what the raw data looks like."

Interview with artist Peter Funch about the upcoming When Records Melt exhibition. Read the full story @ unseenamsterdam.com - “The project features photographs taken during my multiple trips to the Northern Cascade Mountain Range in between 2014 to 2016. The photographs are contemporary recreations of vintage Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier postcards found on Ebay and such. Using these ephemera, maps, and satellite images I was able to locate positions where the original postcard images were made. Consequently I re-captured the mountain’s glaciers from the same positions to create comparative juxtapositions of then and now. As an aesthetic point of departure, I’ve used RGB-tricolour separation, a technique invented in the 19th century during the Industrial Revolution. RGB-tricolour separation is a process that uses red, green, and blue filters to make three monochrome images, which are then combined to make a single full-color image. However the current glacial recession predates the use of color photography: the recession dates to 1850, while tricolour projection became the standard in the following decade. With this timeline in mind, we can say that the photographic representation of glaciers has always included it as a subject in a state of decline and regression. The use of RGB-tricolour separation incites a dialogue on the influence of mankind on nature. I see it as our blindness to the consequences we as society are creating in our desire to control nature.” - #climatechange #photography #art #peterfunch #glacier #projectpressure #unseenamsterdam #whenrecordsmelt

When Records Melt, an exhibition dedicated to raising environmental awareness through photography, will be presented at Unseen Amsterdam the 21-23 of September. To truly get to the bottom of all that lies at the heart of the exhibition and the charity Project Pressure as a whole, Unseen spoke to photographer Simon Norfolk, who worked recently alongside founder and director Klaus Thymann on a new collabrative project and the most recent commission created in collaboration with Project Pressure. “We made it on the Rhône Glacier in southern Switzerland which is disappearing at a colossal rate. Because there is a small shop there that carves an ice grotto into the glacier and charges tourists to experience the inside of the blue ice, it has been worth their money attempting to stop the glacier’s retreat. They have invested heavily in a special thermal blanket that has kept about 25m (in depth) of ice from disappearing and has kept the ice grotto in business. After a few winters on the mountain, the blanket is starting to show the effect of the harsh climate up there. We came up with a special light, using a helium balloon; top lit, sepulchral. I wanted to recreate the same light you get over a mortuary slab.” Read the full interview @unseenamsterdam.com.

Glacial ice can range in age from several hundred to several hundreds of thousands years, making it valuable for climate research. To see a long-term climate record, scientists can drill and extract ice cores from glaciers and ice sheets. Ice cores have been taken from around the world, including Peru, Canada, Greenland, Antarctica, Europe, and Asia. These cores are continuous records providing scientists with year-by-year information about past climate. Scientists analyze various components of cores, particularly trapped air bubbles, which reveal past atmospheric composition, temperature variations, and types of vegetation. Glaciers preserve bits of atmosphere from thousands of years ago in these tiny air bubbles, or, deeper within the core, trapped within the ice itself. This is one way scientists know that there have been several Ice Ages. Past eras can be reconstructed, showing how and why climate changed, and how it might change in the future.

An imminent threat to the world, climate change isn't going to disappear anytime soon, but the glaciers might. Arctic sea ice reaches its minimum each September.

The Greenland ice sheet is vast and is difficult to comprehend, as seen in the foreground the ice forms glaciers connecting to the sea. The dynamics of the tidal glaciers is still being investigated but for sure they are contributing to sea level rise, which is happening at a rate of about 3mm per year at the moment. Projections of global sea level rise in the 21st century range between 20 cm and about 2 m. This is this century and this is happening now.
