These sculptures come from “Walking in Antarctica,” a project based on seven weeks I spent in Antarctica in late 2015 as a grantee of the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers Program. There I photographed ice formations, geological formations, and some wildlife, at remote locations and scientific field camps. Some have been made into photographic prints, and others made into the first sculptures produced from 3D scans of the Antarctic landscape, providing a new spatial and tactile way to convey the experience. I use a process called photogrammetry that can generate three-dimensional digital files from a series of still photographs. More information about the project and the process may be found on my website at https://helenglazer.com.
