During the last decade, Philadelphia based artist Diane Burko has been documenting the disappearance of glaciers in large-scale seres of paintings and photographs developed in close collaboration with glaciologists. In this symbiotic relationship, the artist wants her work to accurately reflect the science and the urgency of climate change, and the scientists want the artist’s help in communicating their findigs to the public.
