The state of sea ice means home, food, and opportunity in the Arctic and beyond. As sea ice changes, lifeways are affected. The potential for open waterways means changes to subsistence, impacts on marine life, and the possibilities of new shipping routes, including new possibilities for business, industry and global politics. In this exhibition featuring photography, documentary video, animated film and sculpture, visitors will learn that sea ice is not static. It is moving, changing, seasonal, and dynamic. The issues and perspectives it represents are equally complex, diverse and numerous. Sea ice is not remote to many. Rather, it’s central to life for humans and animals in the Arctic.
