CRYOSPHERE: Frozen in Time

Creative Commons 'BY-NC-SA' version 4.0 license

CRYOSPHERE: Frozen in Time presents still and moving images, narrated by letters written to a past self, to articulate the encounter between the half-century-old artist and the two-and-a-half-million year old cryosphere, the solid water of Earth. Glaciers advance and recede. Memories of three short decades fast forward and rewind in funerary remembrance. The memoriam shows viewers an intimate, one-sided glimpse of love lost to a changing landscape. The three-screen installation offers a meditative space for considering ice sheets — now vanishing on a human time scale — and allows viewers to contemplate the coinciding deaths of humans and the cryosphere.
