The Icesheet is melting

Greenland is covered with a big icesheet. Due to global warming this is melting faster than ever. Visiting the icesheet with a group of scientist made it possible to do an Art on Ice to symbolise that the water melts.

“Everything in this panting is actually melting into each other like the colors are floating and it is raining here so everytime the colors gets wet the colors starts to run.

You can se it makes like lines in the paint and now you can see all the changes in the canvas. so the rain and the weather affects the painting the same way as the weather affect the ice in a way.”


Professor and Climatologist Jason Box is an expert within Ice melting.
