CRYOSPHERE is inspired by the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska. The climate crisis has caused ice forms in Alaska to disappear at a faster rate than other glacierized regions on Earth. These arctic areas play a crucial role in regulating the planet’s atmosphere and have been called “ground zero” for environmental collapse, as rising temperatures and melting sea ice impact local communities and the global destabilization of weather precipitation. The Matanuska Glacier has lost over 84 million tons of ice since 2002.

On June 18th, the entirety of the CRYOSPHERE exhibition will be released as a singular NFT containing a compilation of artworks by participating artists and will be minted on Algorand which is a sustainable and green blockchain. A portion of the proceeds will go to support Cook Inletkeeper, an Alaskan non-profit organization which engages with local communities, Indigenous-led movements, and a strong coalition of groups working to build a bridge to the future by protecting wild salmon landscapes and addressing the climate emergency.
