iceberg globeIcebergs Globe

Our Icebergs installation, designed by James Corner Field Operations, speaks to current themes in landscape representation: physical experience, geometry, and construction. As an interactive exhibit, Icebergs invokes the surreal underwater world of glacial ice fields in a sensory and educational manner, providing the visitor both a better understanding of this fragile ecosystem and an engaging physical experience.

After visiting, you can remember Icebergs with this striking, limited edition globe, designed by Cool Snow Globes, which demonstrates the 'tip of the iceberg' principle--that just a fraction of it is showing above water. The globe is made of glass and filled with tinted purified water. It can be cleaned with a soft cloth and glass cleaner and should be kept out of direct sunlight.
