Permafrost mammoths on an American adventure
Our three illuminated giant mammoths have gone on an overseas adventure and are part of the
World of Winter Lights Festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The installation ‘Permafrost’ made to highlight the growing concern in the fight against climate change. Permafrost is a permanently frozen layer beneath the earth’s surface which consists of rock and soil. This phenomenon has often been referred to as the ‘sleeping giant’ of climate change. As global temperatures rise, the once always-frozen ground starts melting, exposing historical information, including DNA, microbes and ancient fossils.
These creatures were designed and produced in-house and are available for hire.
