Under the title Vanishing Glaciers, Project Pressure is presented at the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change – Hong Kong. Walking through the museum, audiences can see photographs by the artists; Corey Arnold, Michael Benson, Scott Conarroe, Peter Funch, Simon Norfolk and Klaus Thymann. The walls are covered with full height printed canvases with glacier images shown in a saloon-style layout. As you walk through the museum you pass through the seven continents, experiencing all types of glaciers be that on top of volcanoes, tidal-glaciers connecting with the sea or classic valley glaciers. Project Pressure also presents a new way of showing comparative images, the team worked with Erik Schytt Holmlund who sourced images from 1946, 1959, 1980 and 2017 of the Tarfala Valley, Sweden and using photogrammetry created 3D models with photorealistic surfaces. In a video journey, you fly through the landscape as the surfaces fade over the years and see how the glaciers are retreating.
