Archaeologies of Climate is an installation made of solid glass columns that are inspired in ice cores and glacial deposits as archaeological artifacts of climate change. Through these materials, Earth’s climate history can be accessed, studied and re-constructed, in the very same way civilizations of our past are interpreted from their ruins and architectural remains.
The project includes ten glass columns of various heights, and a wall drawing featuring atmospheric carbon dioxide density fluctuations over the last 800.000 years. Data gathered from glacial ice cores and provided by Nasa Climate Change.
view of installation at Arqueologías Climáticas, Galería Álvaro Alcázar. January 9th through February 20th, 2020.
Project awarded with a Madrid’s Artistic Production Funds Grant (Ayudas a la Creación Comunidad de Madrid) in May 2019.
