It’s Freezing in LA! #7: Regeneration

The seventh issue of It’s Freezing in LA! explores the theme of Regeneration with writing on a variety of topics about enviromentalism in its contemporary form. Example articles look at online climate activism, artists challenging conventional narratives about oil politics, and the commodification of nature. New ideas are explored, with writing on slow fashion in the South Asian diaspora, and the history and future of sustainable death care.

Reflecting on regeneration as a theme, Issue 7’s graphic identity focuses on ice cores, long cylindrical samples of ice which form from snow building up over generations. Scientists study the contents of air bubbles trapped between the grains to retrace historical atmospheric conditions. Scientist Dr. Joan Fitzpatrick shared a database of high-res microscopic imagery showing grains inside sections ranging from 140m to 3365m below the Earth’s surface. The images were colourised to create the graphic theme of the issue, and included on a central data spread to unpack what can be discovered from the ice core sections.
