About the project

"On January 13th, 2019, I reached the South Pole after having skied solo and unsupported for 51 days across Antarctica. There, I faced a mirrored ball on a pole marking the Earth’s axis of rotation. If all the polar ice caps melted because of global warming, the sea level would rise 70 meters. The chrome sphere on a block of ice reflects not only the vastness of the polar world, but invites us to look ourselves in the mirror and take action for a better future."
