Marlo here. We have had quite the week at Pixel Movers & Makers with two pieces of fab news!
It’s been a perfect finale to a summer that has seen us each juggling work, life, occasionally the dishes, and even a little downtime* now and then. (*Neither of us is very good at slowing down even then, it seems.)
Firstly, we are thrilled, extremely grateful, and mightily enthused to announce we’ve received a grant from Ice Alive! Ice Alive has a perfectly mutually-aligned vision, to explore “Earth’s cold places through science, film, music, art, and writing.”
Until now, our efforts have run on weekday midnight oil, stolen weekend hours, Twitter DMs, and deep, driving concern for our polar ice alone. This grant makes a huge difference to our work. The support and generosity of Ice Alive will help us achieve our goals in very concrete ways. Above all, we are so happy to join with others on a mission to creatively show the world the spellbinding beauty, curiousness, and vital importance of our polar regions.
The grant has also funded my registration fee for the 2018 WAIS Workshop! And therein lies our second piece of super news.
We have been invited to present a poster and our animation progress at the Workshop. We are so happy and grateful to Indrani Das and the other organizers of the Workshop for this exciting opportunity!
I’m really looking forward to learning more about the WAIS and even more to seeing folks I met at the APECS Antarctic Hydrology workshop in February, too, plus meeting new ice-lovin’ friends. See you there!
