Throughout history, ice has romanced the landscape – snow-capped mountains, pristine frozen lakes, stately icebergs floating through the water. But now the idea of ice has taken on an urgent tone and its as much the subject of scientific study as it is the artist’s muse. What if instead of looking at the world through large and complex systems like politics, economics, community health, we observed the world through the lens of ice? Living on the ice edge travels to places on the planet where water is frozen into ice, the cryosphere. And asks scientists, artists and enthusiasts what can we learn from and how can we learn to live on thin ice?
