A moment in time is captured within the ice a collection of objects that relate to the site as they are part of it.This installation explores the changing states of matter and its instability under different conditions . The temporal nature of the piece reflects in the ever changing surroundings, the water carving the brick verses the water releasing the found objects and dissipating.
The sculptural elements to this piece are in flux ever changing throughout the duration of the exhibition. The viewer, paradoxically, destroys the piece as they get closer raising the air temperature and increasing melt.
The sound of dripping can be heard through the headphones timed to be off set from the actual event creating a sense of uncertainty. The strange glow from the base emitting up through the melt water and refracting through the ice coupled with the sound creates an environment for the viewer to interact with.
Blue is a cold colour that relates to the ice , it is also contrasts with the environment that it is situated in. The connotations that are attached to blue relate to the void, this link gives the piece a mysterious quality that creates suspense and a slight sense of unease. Paradoxically the glow can also bring a calming hypnotic feel that can bring serenity.
The conflicting emotions are key to the intent on the viewer the experience that is being conjured.
