“Invisible journey” is a one million year journey through ice and through time. The project was initiated by a group of scientists and artists at the international ARENA “Large Astronomical Infrastructures at CONCORDIA” conference at Roscoff, October 2006, and obtained the label of the International Polar Year in March 2007. The aim of the “Invisible journey” is to send a message towards the future. This message will take the form of an object which will be deposited in the Antarctic ice-pack. The object will be transported on its slow voyage through the ice-pack, as it migrates from its launch point towards the Antarctic ocean, for a period of ~1 million years. The “Invisible object” is a kind of post-card that we wish to send to our descendants.The messages will be collected from all over the Earth. By this action, we wish to reinforce connections between people, in particular between those of the far North and the far South.
