Science Gallery Venice – Earth Water Sky Residency

VSG WORKSHOPSI’ve just got back from Venice where I’ve been working with Professor Carlo Barbante and his team at Ca’ Foscari University on the International Ice Memory Project. As part of the research process I have also been running narrative and movement workshops at Ca’ Foscari University and with our partners Centro per la Scena Contemporanea (CSC) and Y-40 in Bassano del Grappa and Montegrotto Terme.

The Ice Memory Project aims to create a library of ice cores drilled from non-polar regions, which will be safely stored in Antarctica. From the ice cores and the air bubbles trapped in the ice, some of  which can be dated back as far as 18,000 BCE, scientists can reconstruct the Earth’s past climate and atmospheric composition. It is an invaluable record of climate change.

You can listen to Professor Barbante and myself talking about the project in this recent radio interview with Deutsche Welle and read more about the work here:
