The Physical Impossibility of Ice in the Mind of Someone Living in Summer

IMG_1076 IMG_1078 IMG_1080 IMG_1081

Inspired by Ballard’s “The Crystal World”, Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle”  and Hiorn’s “Seizure” this is a developmental stage  of a new  project to make a form of “ice” that doesn’t melt,  so that I might  juxtapose or blend the seasons. This is a small frozen woodland pool,  that someone might  simply stumble upon, and which  has a summer flower apparently trapped in thick and  dense ice.  The temperature is 20 C and thus, to the observer,  the ice is a beguiling  and crystaline paradox.

  1. I live in a country where summer never ends, so your title speaks to me volumes. Especially with these delicate images below.This is beautiful. I can’t wait to see more.
