Antarctica: Dissolving Perception consists of three hand blown glass domes that research the three central issues surrounding scientific documentation of decreased ozone over Antarctica during the last twenty years. Through shifting scale the domes act similarly to a microscope, magnifying the areas of impact on the ice over the landmass. This research discusses the potential implications the forecast for decreasing ice implies.
