Mosaic of Antarctica: a visual Installation of Glass Maps

Mosaic of Antarctica: a visual Installation of Glass Maps
By polar artist Lucinda Wilkinson


Mosaic of Antarctica is a visual installation comprising of at least 30 glass maps showing detailed areas of the Antarctic ice sheets and sea ice, highlighting the changing patterns of ice in its accumulation and discharge due to environmental warming. In the production of this installation explored areas have been transcripted onto glass panels using imagery from Mosaic of Antarctica (Radarsat and Modis) and the new satellite data Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA). This is the most detailed map produced yet from scientists at the national snow and ice data centre, Nasa and British Antarctic Survey, UK. Wilkins ice shelf Satellite Imagery has also been used
