88 Cores descends two miles through the Greenland Ice Sheet in one continuous pan dating back more than 110,000 years at bedrock. The GISP2D Ice Core was drilled between 1989-1993 as part of the the Greenland Ice Sheet Project, research sponsored by The National Science Foundation.  The pace and scale of the work is a gesture towards deep time and the gravity of climate change.

 

88 Cores is currently on view at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons as part of The Climate Museum’s inaugural exhibition, In Human Time.
