Snow Mirror is the first in a series of pieces that celebrate slowness and black and white, in this piece the image of the viewer is created by the congregation and accumulation of white snow flakes in areas of the image that are brighter. The result is projected on a transparent silk fabric which creates a feeling of the flakes being suspended in space. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's 2009 exhibition, Reflections. Our Exploratorium team talks to scientists from POLENET (Polar Earth Observing Network).

For two days Summit Camp, Greenland experienced strong winds and blowing snow, making work, and even walking around camp, difficult. Join us for this special Webcast from Summit Camp, which sits atop nearly 2 miles (about 3200 m) of ice on the Greenland ice cap. We'll talk with Zoe Courville, an Ice Stories blogger and snow researcher from the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, about life on top of an ice sheet. She'll also discuss her research into how snow becomes glaciers.
