What if ice that has been frozen for hundreds of thousands of years could be used to predict the future of our climate? The series 'Climate Archive' by photographer Suzette Bousema employs tubular samples of ice from Antarctica and Greenland as a tool for observing climate change. By exploring how tangible objects serve to improve our understanding of unobservable concepts such as global warming, these objects not only become tools for scientific research, they become tools of wonder and enlightenment.
