An interactive exhibition of Marina Velikova in Sofia presents the untouched nature and breathtaking views of Antarctica as well as the life of the Bulgarian scientists who took part in the 32nd Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition. The exhibition, titled The Ices of Antarctica, is on display until May 5 on Lovers' Bridge in Sofia. 

Visitors will be able to see photos of Antarctica and hear its sounds by scanning the QR code on each photograph.

The interactive exhibition is the first event within Velikova's project Antarctica in New Dimensions, which combines photography, music, and fine arts to popularize Bulgarian scientists and their contribution to research on Antarctica.

At the exhibition's opening on Monday, Velikova said that at first, she only wanted to make audio recordings of Antarctica, but later the idea grew into a much bigger project. She expressed the hope that visitors will feel the connection with nature and think about what we can do in our daily lives to protect Earth. 

Among the guests were Prof Christo Pimpirev, President of the Bulgarian Antarctic Institute, Sofia Deputy Mayor for culture, education, sport, and youth activities Yana Genova, Bulgarian National Radio Director General Milen Mitev, participants in the 32nd Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition, sponsors, and Velikova's colleagues, friends, and relatives.

Velikova is a musician, performer, and music director at the Bulgarian National Radio. She has graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and the Prof Pancho Vladigerov National Academy of Music in Sofia. Inspired by an interview she took from Prof Pimpirev, she joined the 32nd Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition of the Bulgarian Antarctic Institute to record the sounds of glaciers, animals, and the ocean. She also decided to draw using Antarctic water and to take various photos.
